ACR Blog Radio - Performing Empathy (Annual Conference Workshop sneak peek!)

Tune in Wednesday, July 24 at 4:30 pm Eastern time for our upcoming show featuring an  ACR Annual Conference Workshop Preview - Dorit Cypis and Susan Oetgen's session titled "Performing Empathy: What Artistic Sensibility Brings to Conflict Resolution."

Empathy is more than feeling for another; empathy allows us to listen for the emotional cause of a conflict. Arts have the inherent ability to short-cut cognitive and affective blocks and ignite empathy. In this session, we will draw from arts-based modalities to build perceptual and bias awareness, cultivate artistic sensibility to transform conflict-causing responses, and develop empathy. The facilitators bring over 40 combined years of expertise in conflict mediation, education, visual and performing arts, and body-based therapies. Ample time will be given to experiential learning and group discussion on how these arts-based modalities can be applied in varied contexts.
