TIPS FOR MORE EXPRESSIVE COMMUNICATION FOR PEOPLE WITH PARKINSON’S
In part one of my blog and podcast about facial masking, I explored the “what” of facial masking. I wanted to elaborate on what a masked face actually looks like, how easy it is to take our ability to communicate with our faces for granted and to know more about its impact on social relationships. These questions led me to find Professor Linda Tickle-Degnen to discuss her life’s work in occupational therapy and social psychology and her particular focus researching facial masking.
I learned that facial masking is an important symptom of Parkinson’s to pay attention to because it can limit the ability to communicate emotion.
