Specchio Magico Cooperativa Sociale ONLUS
A project like SPECCHIO MAGICO must find in the human resources employed and in their own constant professional training the complete reference figures able to bring that added value the choice of the name itself wants to transmit. We have chosen an artistic quote for our name. The reference is the work of Maurits Cornelis Escher Magic Mirror; because our business is to make available a compass, a map, or perhaps just a mirror. The reflection of the mirror allows you to analyze the starting situations through their own image, then through a careful analysis of the own needs and characteristics. At the same time it allows a reflection beyond the specular surface, enhancing the excellences owned and identifying the best methods of intervention. Reflective recognition, reflections over the mirror. A words ‘play to underline the assumption of our interventions, educational, psycho-pedagogical, formative. All this is possible only thanks to the team work, constant and scrupulous, which allows all operators to be in possession of the necessary tools to do the difference in the relationship with beneficiaries of their services. Magic Mirror moves through methodologically elements of internal training and supervision that become decisive elements of the just operated.
Feeling and thinking, speaking and understanding, desiring something and communicating it: this is the emblematic circularity of experience and knowledge that characterizes every formative and educational situation and, more generally, each interpersonal relationship.
Educating is first of all a relational process and as such a vehicle of emotions, individual expectations and planning to what is communicated and experienced and to what we tend.
