These sessions won't be recorded but a summary video will be posted soon after for those who weren't able to attend the live chat, but would like to engage in the online text-based discussions in the online portion of the book club.

Why This Book? Why Now?
Self-Reg is grown and lives within relationships. These relationships are built through connections. Sometimes these connections are obvious. Sometimes they are built through unconscious limbic communication. This unconscious limbic communication happens through the interbrain.
Digby Tantam explores the ground-breaking theory of the interbrain, the idea that human beings are endlessly connected by a continuous interplay of non-verbal communication of which we are unaware. Considering social smiles and the way emotions can spread from one person to another, he explores the research that shows how our brains are linked and draws out the implications of the interbrain for our understanding of empathy, social communication, psychology and group behaviour (Tantum, 2019, back cover).
