MAKE FRIENDS WITH YOUR FEELINGS
Self-confidence, compassion, a well-developed ability to handle set backs and to express feelings constructively is key to healthy societies and individuals. The workshop focus on how to help children to use their feelings constructively in daily life. How to calm and motivate yourself, to express and communicate what you experience and to understand and respect other people’s feelings.
During the workshop, we practice self-compassion and explores the motto of Maria-Pia’s latest book Medkänslans pedagogik (Teaching compassion): Understanding yourself is the first step towards understanding others. Another theme is how to “reduce the thresholds” so that more people can become part of what we call the “we” which is necessary for us to feel compassion with each other.

Friendy is a doll that express the feelings happy, angry, sad, afraid, sulky and calm.
