Metacognition and You
Presented by: Matt Minahan, Ed.D.
Thursday, June 18, 2015
Duration: 90 Minutes
In this webinar, we will discuss the three major regions of the brain, how they interact, how they often undermine our best intentions, and what we can do to overcome that. Metacognition is fundamental to our use of self. If we want to improve the results that we get in the world, we have to change our behaviors, which means changing our beliefs -- about ourselves, others, and the world. It is our metacognitive capacity that enables us to examine and potentially change self-limiting, and success-limiting beliefs and behaviors.
The objectives of this webinar are:
- Define metacognition and the role that it plays in our lives
- Explain the three regions of the brain, how they have evolved, and how they continue both to support and undermine our success; and
- Help develop strategies to increase metacognitive capacity (hint: you already know what the answer is.)
