A “face value” judgment can give us clues about who someone is – but how can we go beyond these initial impressions and really understand someone else?
This workshop begins with a chance to reflect on the students’ own identities and therefore those of others. Then, using a “video encounter” with Hindu presenter Suchitra, we will identify and practise key practical skills for empathising and building positive relations with different people. These include active listening, observing, comparing, and summarizing points of view that may not be our own.
This is a companion workshop to “The Art of Asking”
