train empathy

  • Social thinking as a basis for cooperation, common learning and mental health in school
  • Knut Schnell
  • Lecture

Empathy can be defined as the ability to understand the feelings and beliefs of others and to relate them to one’s own emotions and thoughts. This ability forms a basis for human cooperation and mental health. One method of training this ability together is applied improvisation. The event will discuss how the principles of the “yes, and” instead of the “yes, but” can be translated into the design of living and learning together in a school.

Dr. Knut Schnell is Medical Director of the Asklepios Fachklinikum, Head of the Translational Psychotherapy Research Group at the University Medical Center Göttingen and co-organizer of the first German-language conference on applied improvisation in psychotherapy planned for 2020.
