Reading a Smile

Reading a smile is a treatment program for addressing deficits in perception of emotions. Originally designed for people with acquired brain damage, the program has demonstrated scientific efficacy also for other populations within developmental disorders (e.g., Asperger’s), psychiatric disorders (e.g., schizophrenia), and other forms of brain injury.

A research project financed by BBK and in collaboration with the Eragintza Foundation is currently being carried out to validate the Reading a Smile program in a population with severe mental illness.
