MIND CURIOSITY

Have you ever wondered what makes you who you are – is it your genes or how the environment sculpted you?
Can you truly understand why sometimes we don’t all just get along with each other, whether it is children, parents, friends and teachers?
Do you ever find yourself wondering why you or someone else had a certain behaviour and what it might mean?

The mind is a wonderful and complex entity which can be very mysterious at times. At this workshop, we will discuss the processes behind our choices, our behaviours and even our thoughts and emotions!

Once we can better understand how the mind functions, we are not only able to balance ourselves emotionally and cognitively by being conscious of what we need and what we want, but we can also maintain a healthy brain and mind by being aware of our own triggers when it comes to mental issues.

A central part of this workshop is represented by mental health and what it means – the line between a healthy and an unhealthy mind, but also general information on objective and safe means of evaluation (this is particularly useful considering all the tests and false information that can be found online that often allow students to self-diagnose).

There will be a theoretical foundation followed by numerous real-life examples and cases, specific tools, experiments and games, all adapted to the knowledge and age of the students.

This workshop does not require any prior studies on this topic – we are here to learn together about others and ourselves.
