Tips to cope with Prosopagnosia (face blindness)

Tags: Mental illness


Prosopagnosia (face blindness) is an impairment in the recognition of faces. Many people with prosopagnosia aren't able to recognise family members, partners or friends.  They may cope by using alternative strategies to recognise people, such as remembering the way they walk, or their hairstyle, voice or clothing.  Not surprisingly, a person with prosopagnosia may avoid social interaction and develop social anxiety disorder (an overwhelming fear of social situations).
