“If you can educate yourself – you can educate others”

Yehuda Tagar

Teaching, education and educational management work is considered one of the most exhausting professions in the world. 

A lot is expected of teachers and educators by children, parents, colleagues, management and the educational system. They are very exposed to scrutiny and criticism from all sides and the heaviness of their responsibility is great. But many of the skills required for the self-management, the communication skills and the stress management of this essential profession – are not taught in teachers training. The result is a widespread burnout amongst teachers. 

What educates is who one is, more than what one knows and says. To be an effective educator one has to be engaged in an on-going process of self education and personal development. 

Psychophonetics Institute International (Skola Empatie in Slovakia & Czech Republic) offers specific training in Methodical Empathy, communication skills, sustainability and Leadership Skills and burnout preventions skills for teachers and educators on all levels, through our Foundation Year of Psychophonetics – Diploma in Holistic Coaching for Self-Care, sustainability and Leadership skills, using Psychophonetics.

How it works

It includes 6 x 4 days intensive seminars ending with a 1-day final session (25 days total attendance).

  • Each teaching day consists of 4 blocks where the theoretical basics of the methodology and mental phenomena are alternated with practical demonstrations, actual training of the method- either on yourself or in a pair or group, and supervision questions (depending on the content of the specific seminar).
  • 1x during the seminar is an evening lecture.
  • Closed group max. 25 students per group.
  • We also organize the first seminar to provide an opportunity to get acquainted with the form, course and conditions of the study. After the first meeting you can decide to continue your studies.
  • The course is conducted in Slovak and English simultaneously with translation.
  • Seminars will be conducted in a face-to-face format (preferred) or online as videoconference (via Zoom) if the situation does not allow us to meet physically.
  • 4 face-to-face sessions with a psychophonetic counselor are mandatory within the year as a personal experience with the methodology.
  • This includes small group work between sessions and practice of the skills learned.
