The Power of Emotions

Katarzyna Wiącek, Katarzyna Sochacka


Is there room for emotions, feelings and empathy at school? Are there any emotions that shouldn't be discussed with your students? How can we develop empathy among students? Should we, as teachers, work on our empathy? During our workshop you'll find answers to these questions. You'll find out how to identify your emotions and what purpose emotions serve. You'll get to know different levels of empathy and receive ready-to-use activities for you as well as your students. The workshop will be very practical and empathetic - because education is not only knowledge but also relations.
