Educational courses "Mirror neuron technology. Innovative method of psychological counseling" is hold for bachelor and master students in order to form skills in implementation of Innovative  method of psychological counseling, based on Mirror neuron technology.

For the first time mirror neuron was discovered and described by Giacomo Rizzollatti  in early 1990's at the University of Parma. It was proved that this neuron fires both when a creature acts and when it observes the same action performed by another. That is a mechanism of understanding the actions of other people and learning new skills by imitation.

Later on a Mexican neurophysiologist J. Zylberbaum conducted a series of experiments and  proved that the ability to understand the psychosomatic and psycho-emotional state of another person, to feel and to show empathy is also the result of mirror neurons work. Moreover, J. Zilberbaum made a splash in scientific community, proving the ability of mirror neurons to transmit this information from a distance.

Since that time a concern with mirror neuron has been growing. The field of the research has long gone beyond the framework of neurobiology and is rapidly capturing medicine, psychophysiology and psychology.
