The Seeing Lab is a professional training to learn how to detect and read micro-expressions, small contractions of the facial muscles that last only tenths of a second, but give a window into what someone is truly feeling.

Did you ever talk with a client or a friend & get the feeling that there's something more they want to say? Maybe they said they were happy, but you noticed a hint of frustration. Or maybe they said were mad, and you noticed a hint of happiness.

In this course we use imaging software, the same kind used for training detectives and members of secret services, to assess & train your people-reading abilities. Your pretest and post-test scores will tell you what emotions you are best at detecting. Then, we talk about how to apply your skills.

Learning outcomes:

1. Measureable increase in ability to read micro-expressions

2. Deeper understanding of human motivation and emotions
