Workshop Week No. 1 (Montmeló, Spain)

The first workshop week was held within the school INS Montmeló on November 23th - 27th, 2015.

Topic: Emotions And Us

Socioemotional education is the ability to recognize both our own and our peers' emotions, and be able to express, use and manage them positively. The aim of the socioemotional competences acquisition is not only building self-awareness, but also the improvement of relationships and coexistence at school.

Socioemotional competences can be divided in 5 groups:

1) Emotional Awareness: understanding our own feelings and emotions, being able to spot them and label them (fear, anger, happiness, frustration, etc.)
2) Emotional Management: It allows to manage emotions properly, not only to prevent negative emotional states (anxiety, stress, depression) but also to generate positive emotions (happiness, love, humour). It requires emotional self-control (to control impulsivity, rage, violence).
3) Emotional Autonomy: It fosters personal self-management. It is influenced by elements such as self-steem, self-knowledge, the ability to ask for help, resilience or emotional self-efficiency, which helps us to generate the emotions we want.
4) Social Competence: It means having good relationships with the others, master basic social abilities (apologize, say "no") and having the ability of effective communication, with cooperation and prosocial attitudes. Assertivity is also very important.
5) Competences for life and welfare: They let us organize our life in a balanced and healthy way, by providing us with experiences of either satisfaction or welfare. Setting realistic goals, cooperative decision-taking, commited and solidary citizenship, enjoy one´s own welfare and transfer it, etc.


Types of emotions. How to recognize them. Emotion management.
Practice: We created a human statues which had to reflect an emotion. The activity was organised per groups, which worked cooperatively.
We danced salsa and discovered how we feel when dancing.

Emotions through works of art: We visited a famous artist and looked for different works of art which represent her emotions. She explained the way betwen emotion and art to students.

We showed our students an emotion by looking at the human statues, and ask them to create something with waste materials. We exposed the students' work in the hall of our high school INS Montmeló.

Specific workshops: Didactic plans, presentations and videos
