Dana Lichtstrahl's SPEAKOLOGY is more than a public speaking & communication curriculum for kids, (and now adults too). It's a journey into the peaceful development of creative potential. From there arises confident, inspired self-expression. A win-win FOR ALL.
WHAT IS SPEAKOLOGY? In February of 2011, SPEAKOLOGY -- an identity-exploration and communication program, which includes best practices in public speaking -- was offered to an intergenerational group of young people, ages 7 to 17, learning the same material together, thereby driving the success - the rock solid confidence, creativity and resilience of the group; allowing them to have an indispensable impact on each other, in their community, their country, and the world—FOR LIFE. In 2016 adult trainings were added.
WHAT’S THE BENEFIT? SPEAKOLOGY ignites the peaceful development of creative potential within each participant, resulting in people who make a beneficial difference where they live, attend school, work — and beyond.
Four Learning Objectives;
1) Gain a greater sense of their identity; maximizing personal fulfillment and confidence.
2) Improve their ability to hear and speak from a big-picture perspective; positively stimulating existing communication capabilities.
3) Embrace change and time as an ally.
4) Become innovative collaborators and joyful, life-long learners.Curiosity becomes a driver.
WHY DOES IT WORK? Group games, expressive dialogue, writing exercises, sense awareness practices, art, music, dynamic weekly practice assignments; together move participants to realize the 4 Learning Objectives.
Concluding the 12-hour, 4-week, educational-training, participants share 3-minute oral presentations in a “Town Hall” format, with Q&A (Question & Answers), to a live audience. SPEAKOLOGY Certificates of Communication are awarded.
SPEAKOLOGY trainings are offered to the public as 12-hour, 4 or 6-week, educational-trainings, as 4-hour workshops and as individual coaching sessions, at Tigerlabs, 252 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ 08542.
Trainings are also offered In-home to neighborhood groups, schools and wellness organizations.
