We will address theoretical and applied questions of synchrony in embodied social interaction:

  • What is the role of the body in social interaction and mental processes?
  • In conversations, how are verbal and nonverbal interaction related?
  • Can the phenomenon of synchrony elucidate psychotherapy process?
  • How can practitioners incorporate principles of embodiment into their work?
