MILWAUKEE SUCCEEDS SEL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES


Quarter 2: Social Awareness

Social Awareness refers to the ability to accurately recognize and regulate one's own emotions, thoughts, and values and how they influence behavior in different situations. Building this competency can have major effects of how we build community – specifically when working to:

  • Create calm and respectful working and learning environments;
  • Build stronger Family and Community connections; and
  • Increase positive social interactions necessary to make diversity, inclusion and equity a reality.

The goal of this 2 ½ hour workshop will introduce participants to holistic and interactive approaches and tools with which they can build a progressive socially aware community using Theatre. Techniques will be based on Theatre of the Oppressed (TO), developed by Nobel Peace Prize nominee Augusto Boal, and The Virtues Project.

Participants will:

  • Be able to recognize and cultivate their own social interactions and reactions;
  • Activate the strengths they need to face awkward social situations;
  • Practice techniques to restore the calm, balanced, equitable environment necessary for problem solving; and
  • Actively engage with others who play similar roles that can become a resource to you moving forward!


Group Exercises, Image Theatre (in which participants use minds and bodies to explore issues), and Applied Theatre (which allows participants to develop and test techniques for real life implementation) will guide this work.

If we are serious about reducing trauma and promote healing in Milwaukee perspective taking, empathy and respect will be critical to the process. Join us as we convene to practice building community!


This workshop will be offered twice to meet potential demand (Tuesday morning 11/13 and Wednesday evening 12/12). You only need to register for one of the two dates to have a seat at the table!
