    Cursus leugendetectie van Badass Intensive Courses - leer emoties en leugens doorzien
    We worden allemaal wel eens belogen… en vertellen zélf ook wel eens een wit leugentje. Sommige leugens kunnen echter niet door de beugel en dat geldt eveneens voor het verzwijgen van belangrijke informatie. Onze cursus maakt van jou een levende leugen- en emotiedetector! Met jouw cursusgeld kan je wanneer je maar wilt meedoen aan eender welke van onze cursussen. Zo kan je niet alleen leren acteren, maar ook proeven van onze cursussen debat- en presentatietechnieken (onze tv-cursus), communicatie, zang, improvisatie, 'physical acting', leugendetectie, hypnose, regie, of schrijven! Natuurlijk blijft wel gelden: hoe meer je 1 bepaalde cursus volgt, hoe sneller je vooruitgaat. ‘Ik ben niet van streek omdat je tegen me loog, ik ben van streek omdat ik je vanaf nu niet meer kan geloven.’ Friedrich Nietzsche Leugens & emoties leren (door)zien We hebben het allemaal wel eens meegemaakt: iemand heeft ons in het verleden belogen of heeft de waarheid zo lang verstopt dat hij of zij ons heeft gekwetst of op een andere manier heeft benadeeld. Soms komt de leugen vanuit een onverwachte hoek, vaak zelfs van een naaste die we vertrouwden of een collega die onze reputatie heeft bezoedeld. Dankzij onze cursus leugen- en emotiedetectie leer je veel beter zien wanneer iemand je voorliegt… en wat hij of zij echt zou kunnen denken. Deze cursus is echter veel meer dan dat: zo leer je gemakkelijker emoties zien en interpreteren, vaak middels kleine signalen. Daarvoor gebruiken we niet alleen Facial Action Coding System (F.A.C.S.), het systeem dat je aan het werk ziet in een serie als 'Lie to Me', maar verschillende andere benaderingen die ook rekening houden met lichaamstaal, taalgebruik en intonatie. Belangrijk daarbij is dat we de lessen van iemand als professor Ekman – de man die F.A.C.S. uitvond en in de fictiereeks werd herdoopt tot Lightman — en andere technieken toetsen aan de wetenschappelijke evidentie rond wat wel en niet werkt. Niet elk detail binnen een systeem blijkt immers even universeel te zijn of even goed te werken. Daarom gebruiken we de nieuwste onderzoeken en inzichten om een zo juist en goed mogelijke cursus te kunnen aanbieden. De studie van leugens en emoties vormt zonder enige twijfel de grootste brok theorie van alle cursussen die we aanbieden, maar die wordt aangevuld met veel praktische oefeningen en natuurlijk is het leuk om proberen uit te zoeken wie van de cursisten ware en wie verzonnen verhaaltjes aan het vertellen is. Wil je dus leren om emoties heel snel te herkennen en te kijken wat er achter iemands façade omgaat? Schrijf je dan zeker in voor deze cursus! SPAAR UiTPASPUNTEN Als je deelneemt aan deze cursus, kan je ook UiTPAS-punten verzamelen. Die kan je sparen om allerlei leuke dingen mee te doen!
