Please join us to hear psychologist and interpersonal relationship expert Ty Tashiro discuss The Science of Why We're Socially Awkward and Why That's Awesome. Dr. Tashiro unpacks decades of research in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and sociology to help us better understand this widely shared trait and its origins. He explains both how awkward people view our complex world and how they can more comfortably navigate it. His message is a welcome, counterintuitive one: the same characteristics that make people socially clumsy can be harnessed to produce remarkable achievements.
