This course takes its name from the Medieval European maps that were purely schematic and only ever meant to illustrate broad differences. In much the same way, Dr Elias Porter's Relationship Awareness Theory is an attempt to articulate how motivations drive the intentions that result in our behaviours. His theory was developed into a similar schematic which offers a glimpse into a world where it might be possible to understand ourselves and our colleagues with a keener insight.

In a world where 7.6 billion people demand to be considered unique whilst simultaneously seeming to define anyone who does not share their view as 'odd', this course aims to provide a lens through which to search for common ground and the vocabulary to articulate where it might be.

The course also explores some of the work pioneered by Keith Johnstone in the area of Status Games, which can lend a sense of flexibility and control to a difficult situation.
