Abstract

This contribution is part of a borderline field between different disciplines, such as: pedagogy, psychology and arts. From the identification of the quality of the educational relationship and of the emotional-relational competence of teachers as variables determining the quality of the teaching-learning processes, the characteristic dimensions and the needs for specific training are highlighted. These dimensions, which concern the sphere of the “being” rather than that of skills and knowledge, are still underestimated and not properly valued within “traditional” training paths. The article seeks to offer a reflection in this direction and some information about the development of an “original” training device, based on reflexive and narrative modes but integrated with methodologies that can also enhance personal and implicit personal dimensions, aimed at change of dysfunctional attitudes.
