In this episode Dr Kate Rice Warnell explains how the social cognitive skills of those in middle child can contribute to social anxiety.
We explore the complicated world of social cognition, theory of mind and mind mindedness and discuss how skills in these areas may contribute to social anxiety in young adolescence. We consider how different skills, such as being attuned to others' thoughts and motivations, could be a contributor to anxiety when applied in a specific way and what this means for supporting social anxiety of those in schools.
