Use of the game of go as an educational and therapeutical tool

The game of go has been successfully used recently as an educational and therapeutical tool, both in Japan and America and Europe. The simplicity of its rules and the depth of the game make it very appropiate to achieve several goals, using the method incepted by Yasuda and Shigeno, japanese professional go players. Among the values of this game are developing attention, self-esteem, as well as many other values and concepts present in the curricula of any modern educational system.

The presentation will cover these topics, an enumeration of actual application cases, as well as guidelines to apply the method with go and with other board games.
