The Face & Emotion course is designed to provide students with a full insight into the human face where they will learn and practice the techniques of the Facial Action Coding System (FACS) and how to make finer distinctions about facial movement and expression.
As self-learners of FACS, we know the pain, frustration, and frankly, the mind-numbing boredom of working your way through the FACS manual on your own. We picked up bad habits, made (1000’s) mistakes, and had the frequent moments of self-doubt that made the learning experience much longer and more painful than it needed to be.
Our goal for this course is to Fast-Track your experience of learning the FACS manual and introduce a facilitative, and interactive method that will mean it’s also enjoyable and applicable to the real-world.
Learning FACS alone can feel like climbing a steep and treacherous mountain. With this course, we will be your sherpa.
The course will run for five days total and from 09:00 – 17:00 each day.
As the goal of this course is to consolidate months of self-learning into five concentrated days – there will be lots of learning, practice, and group work. There will also a little bit of homework to… but don’t worry; you will not be treated unnecessarily cruelty. You will have plenty of time to enjoy the great city of Manchester each evening should you wish.
Please note – you need to pass the official FACS Final Test (linked above) to label yourself as FACS certified legitimately. Our job is to get you to the position of passing the FACS Final Test as quickly, effectively, and enjoyably as possible.
Originally designed as a self-learning manual, FACS used to be a significant undertaking requiring months of reading and practice. This workshop’s purpose is to provide a fun and fast-tracked alternative to self-learning by consolidating the entire FACS manual into interactive group exercises, fun practice sessions, accompanied by expert tutoring and support.
Whether you are currently learning FACS or just starting, this course will teach you the FACS manual through a facilitated workshop that is designed to consolidate and apply your learning in a safe and professional environment with qualified support.
This course builds on many years of research into facial movement and is based on a coding system that has become the universal standard in measuring and understanding facial behaviour – the Facial Action Coding System.
