Almost one year and a half has passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake hit last March, and since then we have been facing to devastating aftermath of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear power plant accident and continuing our effort for reconstruction. In this workshop, let us learn the way to express the voice of here and now to whom you would like to deliver your experience and to return to ourselves.
Psychology today teaches us that conversation with close person would be a great help to face ourselves for further self understanding, and each of us could encounter moment of hope as much as we face the reality of here and now. Over 10 years we have been elaborating “Educational dialogue (Kotani, 2000)”, a way of a dialogue that people could mature. And now, let us practice 6 basic skills of Educational dialogue based on the movement of Japanese people’s mind (Nishikawa, 2012).
