Why Social Skills?
Social Skills are a mysterious set of hidden rules that people in community gradually learn or adapt to using with differing levels of fluency in order to get what they want with less energy rather than more. When we can smoothly maneuver through a negotiation for a toy, a job transition or a hot date, we are said to have "good social skills". However, learning these skills is NOT automatic nor taught in any standard format. Many of us get stuck when social cues are new or unrecognized or we have different brain neurophysiology that does not resonate similarly with others around us.
