Topic: VIDEO CONFERENCE: Love versus Logic in Your NeuroDivergent Relationship
When: Thursday, August 4th at 4 pm Pacific Time
No wonder it’s such a jumble with our NeuroDiverse loved ones when we try to have a simple conversation. NeuroTypicals usually assess everything first from an empathic perspective, which requires tuning into your feelings and the feelings of the other. For example, love doesn’t lack logic but we start with love to prepare the space for our conversation. Logic comes second, but not so with people on the Spectrum.
There often is no second tier for ASD loved ones; it’s logic all of the way. It’s not that your “Aspie” has no emotions. It’s that they don’t use them to assess the interaction. Logic is easier and simpler.
On the other hand, they miss the nuances that logic does not assess. If you want to understand your “Aspie,” listen to the logic and stop searching for the nuance. You might even disregard the nuance entirely since your ASD loved one may inadvertently use the wrong tone or gesture, which only confuses the communication. And certainly don’t expect them to integrate your nuances into the meaning of your logic. It’s not as complicated as it sounds. I’ll help guide you through it.
I hope you will join our discussion and register for this video conference.
