What is The Method?
OPINION: Rafel Bisquerra, Director of Postgraduate Studies in Emotional Education and well-being, and Postgraduate studies in Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at the University of Barcelona.
"After the outdoor training that we do every year with our two Postgraduates, I've spent two days at La Granja in Santa Maria de Palautordera. My experience has been magnificent in every sense and the evaluation is 10 out of 10 according to my pupils. The activities were dynamic and very well planned by Andrés Martín and the team at La Granja, managed and directed with a great 'savoir faire' by the excellent professionals in their staff, all of them emotional education enthusiasts. Our relationship with them was unbeatable, the food was delicious, the landscape is spectacular and the facilities are just great. I am not surprised, therefore, that La Granja has become a place of reference for the training of emotional skills, both for those who are doing formal school education (children and teenagers) as well as for the training of a adults (families, businesses, etc.)."
