Emotions in Research

September 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Some authors describe the academy as a place devoid of emotion (Bloch, 2012), however emotions are a fundamental part of how we live in and experience the world around us. Researchers and participants have emotions and feel emotional responses to experiences, though these can be hard to acknowledge, express, capture and process (that is recognise, name, accept and then potentially act on).


This training event will draw on embodied therapeutic and creative techniques to focus on the presence of emotions in research – how we can attend to and become aware of them in ourselves as researchers and in our participants, how we can hold emotional space for ourselves and our participants to express emotions safely, how we can capture the emotional resonance created in research, again in ourselves and in our participants, and how we can process the emotions we feel directly, and as a result of our participants’ experiences.

Course will run from 09:30-16:00

Particpiants will be asked to wear comfortable clothes to allow them to move freely and bring with you anyting that allows them to sit comfortably (cushions, throws, blankets)
