Pediatric Therapy Corner: TED Talk: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

Editor’s Note:  Special Thanks to Abby Brayton, MS.  OTR/L of the Notes from a Pediatric OT blog for sharing this terrific video that all teachers and therapist clinician should watch!!   Excellent!
From Abby:  Today I’m sharing Amy Cuddy’s talk, “Your body language shapes who you are.” This is a 20 minute talk, so if you don’t have time to watch it right now, I highly recommend bookmarking it for later. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Here are a few things to think about as you watch this talk:

  • What does your body language tell your students/children? Are you telling them, “I’m in power” with your body language? Is that what you want to be telling them?
  • How could you use this information to help your students (or children) who feel that they are not in power (as many children with special needs do feel)?
  • How could you use this information when teaching social skills to students, especially teenagers?

“Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.” – Amy Cuddy
