Family Demo

Learning how to respond most effectively to your offspring’s emotional reactions to bad news.

If you have already looked at PEG Interactive: Work or PEG Interactive: Law Enforcement, click here.

PEG Interactive expects you already know how to spot the emotions that are displayed. The focus is not on how to recognize emotion but how to respond to emotions. If you want some help on recognizing emotion, go to the Face Suite and use Micro Facial Expressions Training Tool and Subtle Facial Expressions Training Tool. (You don’t need to also use Micro Profile Facial Expressions Training Tool and Micro Facial Expressions Intensive Training before using PEG Interactive, but those training tools will expand and improve your ability to spot facial expressions.)

Uncertain about the difference between PEG Interactive, Micro Facial Expressions, Subtle Facial Expressions, and FACS?

PEG Interactive helps you determine how to respond to someone’s emotional expressions. PEG Interactive expects you already have acquired the skills to recognize facial expressions. Micro Facial Expressions Training Tool and Subtle Facial Expressions Training Tool are tools for sharpening your ability to recognize from facial expressions what someone is feeling. If you haven’t yet used Micro Facial Expressions and Subtle Facial Expressions, do so now and then come back and use PEG Interactive.

FACS (the Facial Action Coding tool) is a tool for measuring facial movements. It takes between 50-100 hours to learn. If your goal is to be more sensitive to recognizing emotions, especially concealed emotions, you wantMicro Facial Expressions Training Tool and Subtle Facial Expressions Training Tool not FACS. If you want to learn what to consider when you respond to another person’s emotions you want PEG Interactive not FACS.

The goal in PEG Interactive is to become more considered in how you respond to another person’s emotions, aware that there are always choices and tradeoffs. PEG Interactive trains you to consider the first thing you’re going to say, not what will come next and next after that. While PEG Interactive should make you more thoughtful about what to say, it can’t train you how to say it – that would require in-person coaching.
