Emotional intelligence
Stella Loshchinina speaks about
  • What helps to perceive one’s feelings and emotions
  • How to involve music therapy
  • How to work with metaphors and associations
Key ideas
A graphic tool “Mood Map” by David Caruso helps to better perceive emotional state not only of one’s own, but also of others – through indirect indicators.
Active music therapy (in our case it’s playing djembe drums) helps to better perceive our emotions, including aggression or hurt, and to better deal with them. Even if right now you are thinking “drums are definitely not for me”, please, watch this video. It’s much more accessible than you may think.  
Metaphorical associative cards are a safe and accessible method to work with images and associations, that is with emotions.
