The value of anthropology to therapists, counselors, coaches and educational professionals [IUAES Commission on Anthropology and Education]


Location: Poznań, Poland
Date: 31 Aug 10:00 - 14:00


Room 3.44

In recent years we have witnessed more and more anthropologists doing research and practising their knowledge and skills in the context of therapy, counselling and coaching, sometimes as partners in multidisciplinary teams, as advisers and guides for professionals in these fields, and some as professionals who combine anthropology and these practices. We will consider how anthropology can benefit therapists, counsellors and coaches. Additionally, we will consider the contributions anthropology has made to various educational professionals including teachers, school directors and educational psychologists. It is time to share, discuss and organize our knowledge and skills, so we can share between us and use it to train anthropologists for this great potential for practising anthropology.
