Abstract [en]

The form of my essay is that all human communication, can be seen as a practical knowledge, witch can be trained. I describe how I came in to a pedagogic activity, which is aimed to train people’s communicative ability in their working life and in school. This is made in the form of lectures, seminars and training program. In this essay, I even describe my personally background and what it was, that made me work with people outside the theatre. The theatre that former had been my professional affiliation. The reader is invited to follow me in how I carry out a seminar and to get a picture of how a training program can look like. I describe how some unsuccessful appearance as an actor and as lecturer made me to reflect about what underlying conditions sets the scene for a successful performance. My conclusion is that it has to do with being totally present in the situation.

I ask myself if it really is possible to work in the manner that I do. At the same time I realize that I have been doing so for the past 10 years. But is this really something for the working life? What use can people have of studies and training in communication? These doubts has followed me in my work ever since I started and was the reason for me to start developing a pedagogical training program in practical communication, based on my knowledge in theatre and studies in communication theories. Over the years I have come across a lot of doubt, showing itself in the way I have been perceived, difficulties to see the value in what I am offering and understanding on what the studies are about and lead to. At the same time I have seen it as my task to explain my standpoint and to learn which methods that work and which that do not.

I am pursuing a discourse on how theatre method can be linked to communication and explain some of the key parts of my work and how it is taught. This is largely about a work in process, where understanding on what is happening in the different stages of the training is vital. How experience based learning and feelings inflict our way to act and achieve new knowledge. The importance of feelings and what some researchers on the brain have thought and written in this matter has influenced my outlook on science. Finally I write about the connection between empathy and the ethical aspects of communication.
