Mirroring is just like you’re in the mirror. If they raise their right hand, you raise your left.
Matching is the opposite. They raise their right hand, you raise your right hand.
Crossover Mirroring/Matching-Using one body part to match or mirror some other part, i.e., they are shaking their leg, and you tap your finger at the same rate. This is an especially useful technique when working with someone who is depressed, agitated, or physically/mentally ill as you do not want their state to rub off on you.
