WORKSHOPS

Workshops have different scope. In general terms, they aim to provide participants with the skills to comprehend, recognize and constructively direct emotions.

Participants learn how to become aware and familiar with their feelings and manage them in positive ways.

Insight and practices are provided to review personal values and goals. We work on the criteria we use to make our core decisions, together with the skills to improve our understanding and validation of other people’s emotions.
Workshops are normally structured with an initial overview of the subject, followed by practices.
We promote an interactive approach, focused on dialogue and sharing emotions, to help every participant reach her own responses.
