ACTING AND EMPATHY: Intensive Acating Workshop - Anna Deavere Smith

ACTING AND EMPATHY: Intensive Acating Workshop - Anna Deavere Smith | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Acting and Empathy
Acting is a transformational experience. It is the art of communicating stories but it is also the art of receiving the stories that others are trying to tell you. Quite simply, it is the art of empathy.

 

Those who acquire some of acting’s basic skill sets can use them to become stronger leaders and more successful managers and negotiators. We have designed a week that will inspire actors and refine their skills. It will give other professionals invaluable insights into others and themselves.
