Mental health and substance use disorders among Latino and Asian American lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. Uno studio preliminare ha evidenziato come il tema della morte emerga frequentemente durante sessioni di psicodramma. Psychodramatic psychotherapy with cancer patient: the role of semi-reality. Psychological support to cancer patients is essential to deal with the physical, psychological and relational sufferance that arises and often persists beyond treatment success.
Group psychotherapy has been proven to be effective in reducing sufferance of cancer patients; however only few studies explored psychodramatic psychotherapy. The aim of the present study is to analyse how death is faced during semi-reality representation, in order to explore the functions and the consequences of this condition over both the active protagonist of the semi-reality representation and the other participants. Weekly sessions, of one hour and half each, were provided by the San Paolo Hospital of Milan.
Two independent coder analysed the fragments of sessions in which the theme of death was addressed during a semi-reality representation. Preliminary results suggest that the semi-reality dimension is used to directly address death and to talk about death related themes. Semi-reality dynamics allow to trigger transformative processes in the individual as well as in the group.
INCONTRI: caratteristiche Gli incontri, della durata di minuti, hanno cadenza settimanale e vengono proposti dopo i primi incontri di accoglienza del paziente. Gli incontri sono aperti a un massimo di 10 partecipanti e sono condotti in generale con tecniche attive e partecipative. Il metodo psicodrammatico consente ai presenti di esprimere, attraverso la messa in atto sulla scena, le diverse dimensioni della sua vita e di stabilire dei collegamenti costruttivi fra di esse.
Secondo incontro: Professionisti coinvolti: Psicologhe. Terzo incontro: Professionisti coinvolti: Psicologhe. Quarto incontro: Professionisti coinvolti: Psicologhe. Starting from the role of the Observer, it was possible to identify in the group its function as a holder of universal emotions associated with the pathology and its function as a stimulus in the redefinition of the existential roles of the oncologic patient.
Verranno descritti: il setting , la nascita e lo sviluppo dei gruppi, con alcuni esempi descritti nel dettaglio. Verranno estrapolate alcune riflessioni sul lavoro svolto. Materiali e metodi: i gruppi sono stati avviati da oltre un anno con incontri settimanali e sono tuttora attivi. Piemonte, Italy Introduction :This work is about experiences of groups in therapeutic psychiatric community in Piemonte Italy.
These groups were aimed at people with chronic mental illness, psychic and physical disabilities. This work will be better described, with some more information about setting, birth and groups development, and some detailed examples will be made. Materials and methods : Weekly sessions of groups, started more than one year ago and are still active. Every meeting has been summarized, also with ego helpers comments. In these sociodrama sessions, a large space was given to warming up, which was about many different kind of drama games , improvisation games, role playing with roles exchanging.
And sometimes it was possible to enact a psychodrama with a protagonist. Then, some technical adaptation useful to specific work in therapeutic community with people with psychiatric troubles and disabilities were discussed. It was observed a gradual increasing of communication and relationships between groups members. Most members have experienced this groups with positivity and trust towards the others and they also learnt to feel the group as an emotional container.
There were also observed improvements concerning individual rehabilitation and community life. In doing this work, it came to evidence that it was needed to adapt the setting to a therapeutic community contest, in order to make possible birth and development of the group itself. Questo simposio desidera ospitare e confrontare esperienze di psicodramma e sociometria applicati nelle diverse organizzazioni. All around the world, psychodrama is an elective instrument, not only for psychotherapy, but also for training and consulting. This symposium wish to host and compare some experiences of Psychodrama and Sociometry applied in several organizations.
Emotional satisfaction-warmth,protection,love,sexuality and intimacy- is vulnerable to interference. Our brain is clever enough to remind us what to remember and what to forget about our sexuality and relationships. Our brain is clever enough to remind us what to remember and what to forget.
Mostly in case of ambivalency. The leader being sexual ttherapist and psychodramatist will try to stir up the memories kept in mind and body. Who shall migrate for surviving? A partire da alcuni casi emblematici tratti dal mio pluriennale lavoro nei servizi di accoglienza italiani, alternando momenti di azione scenica e di riflessione ci confronteremo come gruppo internazionale e transculturale sulle metodologie e le risorse utilizzate in altre esperienze e altri contesti.
The sociopsychodramatic intervention in pluricultural contexts. The new migratory flows that have affected Europe over the last decades have produced an urgent need for specific psychosocial intervention in many areas of life and work. This workshop means to be an opportunity for exchange of experiences and knowledge on the application of socio-psychodramatic methods in pluricultural contexts and encounters, in particular working with the migrants in the reception centers and training the social and health workers and teams.
The aim of this workshop is to show how cultural anthropology and socio-psychodrama can cooperate, on one hand to improve the cohabitation and the social inclusion, and on the other hand to develop the competences for intercultural relations. I will present my long-lasting experience in these fields, working out some emblematic cases with psychodramatic techniques, then we will go on reflecting on them. So we will be able to share, as a cross-cultural group, our methods and resources used in various experiences and in different contexts. The aim of this workshop is to show how cultural anthropology and socio-psychodrama can cooperate, on one hand to facilitate the cohabitation and the social inclusion, and on the other hand to develop interculturel competences of relation and communication.
Psychodrama and cientific knowledge production. We will present the research challenges with methods of action and sociometry. We will talk about the epistemology of psychodrama. We will give examples with the research done in the universities of Brazil in the last 15 years. Some research addresses, for example, the issue of AIDS in the country, questions of affirmative action for afro-descendants and domestic violence. This workshop will open the way towards a deeper look at the meanings of gender identity, with consideration of gender stereotypes, gender justice and gender equality concerns, in addition to gender empowerment.

Che cosa intendiamo per teoria e metodologia dello psicodramma? Vi sono diversi orientamenti in questo ambito; numerosi manuali sono stati pubblicati. In tali occasioni, sono emersi due ambiti principali: quello degli assunti teorici di base dello psicodramma e quello delle loro connessioni con altri approcci. Riflettendo sui risultati ottenuti, sulla base delle nostre proprie conoscenze e ricerche in psicodramma, abbiamo pensato di proporre un inquadramento coerente della teoria e della metodologia psicodrammatiche e delle sue connessioni con modelli teorici affini.
All over the world, since the last 70 years, many Institutions have been created to train and certify practitioners in psychodrama. There are various positions in this area; many handbooks have been published. The main instrument used in the past for creating a common theoretical and methodological basis for psychodrama is the Glossary; we can find a number of them available online.
Two main fields have arised: the basic assumptions of psychodrama and their connections with other approaches. Reflecting on the outcomes of that work, on the basis of our own knowledge and research in psychodrama, we thought to propose a coherent framework for the psychodrama theory and methodology and their connections to other scientific disciplines. So we built up two Conceptual Maps, that we will present in this Symposium:. The aims of the two Conceptual Maps are to lay the foundation for a common scientific language in psychodrama and to be a reference tool for training and research in psychodrama.
In this view the two Maps still need to be rectified and improved. The participants at the Symposium will be invited to give their contribution in ideas and suggestions for the realization of the initiative. Is important symbol of resistence to African culture, resilience, overcoming and trasnformation. We propose with the workshop to facilitate that the participants can get in touch with the history of the Abayomi dolls and inspired them, to identify aspects of their relationships that they want to transform.
The public is invited to interact, to find sources of inspiration for creation, using paper, pencils, cand draw, paint, create and recreate, graphically represent the resonance of interactions. Starting from the perspective of the use of the body as an anatomical tool that allows to establish codes of languages and give corporality to something that arises from the interactions. The world is in danger! The sun is going to explode and destroy the whole galaxy!
All civilations have to be transfered to the only surviving Planet. But before they have to unify values and rules to form a new humanity. The rescue star ship is just leaving if all agree. After a nine months long work with Roma women from two villages, living in poverty, doing socio-psychodrama recorded on film a dramaturg wrote a theatre play. The women play their own stories on stage. The performance became a huge success both in Budapest and in the villages where they performed. The play was selected to an International Theatre Festival in Dresden May Theatre history has been written.

Si sono cercate nuove espressioni possibili per lo Psicodramma partendo dal lavoro con soggetti provenienti, prevalentemente, dalla dipendenza, a volte con vissuti di violenza.
These may be new roles, or transformations of existing spiritual roles. The warmups leading to encounter with these roles will roughly follow the model of the typical Tibetan Buddhist 7-branch prayer. They will encounter these roles through a variety of methods, such as reciting mantras, insight meditation , empty chair, expressive sound-and-movement, role interview and role reversal. They will explore ways of using these deity roles as supports or models in dealing with difficult relationships or conflict situations. One or more pieces of psychodrama action will be included.
Previous knowledge of Buddist Vajrayana practices is not required. Herb Propper Ph. The Task Force organizes seminars and conferences in which the members show their methodology for working with collective trauma such as wars, disasters and mass migration. Seminars have been held in Oslo , Stockholm , Turin , Uppsala , Sofia , Iseo , Istanbul and will be held in Granada in Wars leave deep wounds in peoples and individuals , and destroyed social and occupational functioning.
The resulting trauma is a wound , a laceration that brings permanent energy economy disorders of the psyche. Wars are made by people and people suffering by wars. Now the battlefield are the houses. A space in which to respond to basic needs : hunger , thirst , rest protection, and the safe place symbolically marks the conflict, the trauma, puts a limit to the destructive forces by create for the participants of a group the feeling that there is a limit to the emotions and the post traumatic stress, like a safe place in the play, and there is a safe place where you can bring a re — empowerment, self-esteem can grow undermined by the trauma , it is understood as a psychic space inside where they can feel more secure, and is a generator of resources including not least the hope and the new action.
It is he space of play, the space of theatre, the space of psychodramatic surplus reality. It is the place of dreams, where the tension of opposit are hold through symbols. It is the space of fairy tales that contains the archetypical energy of drama. The third place is a space for active imaginations, a mytical space, a symbolic a representative space. RITUALS are similar to symbols, they are part of collective unconsciousness, they represent historical memory as well as historical traumatic events of certain large group. Rituals are part of large group identity DREAMS — One of most important duty when we work on collective trauma is not to retramautize the group members and protagonist, for this it is important do not play the traumatic scene, but can be very helpfull to ask to share dreams connected to collective traumatic experience and play those dreams.
Psychodrama can safely be used to create paths of change for the most severe traumatization. Who survives? The workshop will explore the elements, which enable a person to survive difficult, expected and unexpected situations that life encounters. What helps a person to cope with loss, with crisis, with change?
When we are looking at survival from the perspective of the natural sciences, we relate to the strong who survives. However, the ability to survive is not rooted only in physical strength. People overcome crisis when they are connected to a meaningful other, to people and friends, to an ideal, to group and family, to faith. In the language of self- psychology, a selfobject is necessary and crucial, in order to overcome complexities of life.
Do they come with resilience to the crisis or get out of it strengthened. The workshop will be based on the main psychodrama components — Sociometry, Sociodrama and protagonist work, as appropriate. After months of rambling, research, travels, despair and big spendings, a mother finds out her son has Dravet epilepsy.
After almost one year since the diagnostic, she finds her way to support her child and keep him alive. She gathered other parents, then they asked for help. Working with over 10 types of specialists, using sociodrama, we could help other parents with creating support networks and two guides: one for the journey prior to the diagnostics and one for the journey with diagnostics. Starting that day, the Dravet Association had strategic allies in their work. They even changed a law in Romania. The older children outlived the life expectancy for this condition. They are fighters and they are not alone.
Support networks are key for survival, development, wellness and thriving. We can help their creation on one hand and we can enable persons and groups to devise and activate their support groups on the other hand, with sociodrama. The public is invited to interact, to find sources of inspiration for creation, using paper, pencil, cand draw, paint, create and recreate, graphically represent the resonance of interactions. Starting from the perpective of the use of the body as an anatomical tool that give corporality to something that arises from the interactions.
Sobrevivir o Reparar Nuestras heridas de la vida. Aim of this workshop is to propose a efficacious method in working with children coming from traumatic experiences, deprivation conditions, abuse or other relational or social trauma. Method: Starting from systemic family psychotherapy and through group-analysis, this work method was developed by the author combining Individuative Jungian Psychodrama with needs coming from working with children and adolescents, whose families are multi-problematic concerning culture and social conditions.
Group become for children a retaining safe space where they can increase their self-esteem, trust in relationship and in external world. We will create fast dynamics to found a medium-sized group. It will be an engaging experience of a group foundation, and the beginning of a group process. Focus is on the group process and at the same time on the evolution of each individual. Description: The group process will be developed using natural elements representation, mythical cultural knowledge coming from participants experience, or tales and stories from their transgenerational tradition. Sense-perception and rituals give security and stability.
The action becomes an instrument to overcome the limits in the ability to develop concepts while changing context and habits. Search for group times and rhythms is a consequence of respecting the personal time of each one. A meta-cognitive process mediated by symbols is activated by stimulating all the physic senses. Participants will be connected to their internal world through narratives and dreams before memories that could be traumatic. Results and discussion: We want share experience coming from many years using this methodology in group with children and with teachers also.
Group climate: recognition, trust, listening, freedom, communication. Rituals: group, starts by caring, with attention to details from the first moments of the first meeting. Questa citazione di J. For about twenty years, the Psychodrama Theater has been making public psychodramas, with free participation, on issues of social importance and on the stories of ordinary people.
This quote by J. Participation in public psychodrama can take place at various levels: 1. Participation in this public psychodrama is limited to a maximum of twenty people. Legittimare le emozioni. Il senso di fallimento spesso si estende anche alle famiglie allargate. Il senso di colpa per non aver risposto alle aspettative familiari e la rabbia di questi sono alcuni dei vissuti spesso connessi alla diagnosi. Sviluppi futuri Sarebbe interessante strutturare in modo periodico gli incontri in modo da individuare degli indicatori di risultato.
Anxiety and fear are symptoms survivors of trauma often experience.
Fear is something you feel when you are threatened, while anxiety is anticipating that something traumatic will happen again. Both anxiety and fear have the same physiological response in the body. The opposite of anxiety is spontaneity. All participants become directors. EXIT will be introduced as a form of sosiodrama. Expressive Arts in Transition EXIT is a quantitative and qualitative research project with unaccompanied minor refugee boys aged 15 to EXIT focuses on training spontaneity, enhancing movement, imagination, engagement, connection, here and now, safety and responsibility.
The results of the research and implementation will be shared. Pictures, drawings and sociodrama: fostering the integration of resilience theory in social work with children and families. The concept of resilience has spread widely over recent decades, and more and more often practitioners use it to refer to situations of children and families in care. However, it is often difficult to understand how social professionals drive resilience theory into practice and integrate it into care plans. The sociodramatic drawing and telling group dynamic was used in 8 one-day training sessions with different size groups from 20 to 40 members within different editions of the Italian Program of Intervention for PReventing Institutionalization P.
Massimo ROSSI | Italian Poetry
The activities were audio-recorded and documented by pictures, in order to obtain the transcription and to content analyze it in the future. This first reflection about the use of a sociodramatic drawing activity in training on resilience shows this method as particularly favorable and coherent. As a conclusion, planning a research project seems particularly worth in order to deepen the use of this method, to evaluate it and its impact on professional practice, and to keep empowering the professional culture on using resilience with vulnerable children and families.
The concept of resilience is widespread within the social service culture, though how to drive it into practice with vulnerable children and families is problematic, and its integration in care plans often controversial. Participants will be able to experience the activity, share and discuss about it. Both English and Italian speakers are welcome to participate. Rosa Shemesh by: Supervised by: Dr.
Sharon Rabinovitz Shenkar University of Haifa Drug addiction can lead, among other things, to criminality and delinquency. The withdrawal and therapy process is long and complex, and includes changes of many kinds at different stages. These repercussions can in turn jeopardize rehabilitation and therapy. Previous studies of this subject focused on the dreams of addicts while still achieving abstention and addressed the drugs themselves. Such studies were quantitative and based on the Freudian theory that dreams are an expression of an unrequited desire in conscious life.
They sought to identify the desire for drugs in dreams, with the supposition that early identification of such desire in dreams would lead to better prevention of desire and drug seeking in consciousness, thus enhancing prevention of the recurrence of drug use. The aim was to consolidate a comprehensive approach to the dreams of addicts at different stages of recovery, and the way in which they experience their dreams. Accordingly, changes in the dreams of all addict-subjects at all stages of recovery were examined.
This study is qualitative and phenomenological; thus, it aspires to enable participants to write about and relate their dreams and report their feelings and perceptions in semi-structured, in-depth interviews. The present study reveals that the dreaming experience at all stages of dependency is filled with fear and panic, causing frequent awakening from sleep and compromising the quality of sleep.
Most participants felt that their irregular sleep pattern is jeopardizing their recovery. On the whole the findings point to a clear change in the dream content and dreaming experience of addicts arising from the three stages of recovery. The content of dreams typifying different stages of recovery, the ways in which the participants cope with their dreams and the implications on their sleeping and waking hours significantly expand knowledge gleaned from prior studies that focused on narrow characteristics and the first stage of recovery. The findings of the present study indicate that drug dreams express a complex and difficult emotional experience of withdrawal from drugs, involving a process of bereavement and separation from drugs, friends associated with the period of drug taking and related behaviors.
This study shows, for the first time, that at most stages there are dreams addressing therapeutic content, according to the stage of recovery when they occur. Such dream content also appears infrequently with the achievement of abstention. Furthermore, most of the dreams, regardless of their content, were found to be nightmares and recurrent nightmares. In previous literature this pattern has been considered typical of people suffering from PTSD, which reinforces the findings of several researchers who see in addiction the characteristics of post-traumatic disorder.
The present study is the first of its kind and could prove significant in the planning of therapeutic interventions at different stages of recovery.

Today we are in the middle of fast ecological changes, that human beings have created while spreading out over the Planet.
In this workshop we explore and concretise how knowledge, creative action methods and mindfulness will support us and our clients in organisations, in private life as well as in political life to make responsible actions in order to save ourselves and the Living Planet. We need a totally new way of thinking and behaving in order to deeply understand J. Are we and the future generations victims or active survivors in this new epoch of Anthropocene?
In this workshop we use sociodrama and the concept of Planetary Boundaries that was developed ten years ago to illustrate the Earth system stability. It is used world-wide in ecological discussion in order to understand what is happening now. Efficacia della terapia psicodrammatica in pazienti con Disturbi Depressivi Maggiori gravi.

Il Laboratorio di psicodramma classico per sperimentare lo stretto legame tra i nostri 5 sensi e le emozioni.
This classic Psychodrama workshop is aimed to make people experience the close linkage between our 5 senses and our emotions. This workshop is the result her experience. Understanding the role within this system has a particular importance. Every individual, just as he has at all times a set of friends and a set of enemies, also has a range of roles and faces, a range of counter-roles. They are in various stages of development.
As in all roles, the role of lover is also the subject of different role conflicts like; conflicts in roles, conflicts between roles, conflicts in personality and interpersonal conflicts. In this workshop we will embark on a discovery journey to the role of lover. Unconscious group processes on the stage: An attempt to integrate psychoanalytic concepts and action methods. Nikos Takis, Ph. The relation between psychodrama and psychoanalysis has been complicated for many decades. However, there have been some noteworthy efforts by important group theorist and therapists to combine the two approaches and synthesize them in clinical practice.
This workshop will be delivered based on the method of the psychoanalytic psychodrama inspired by the French Psychoanalysts Didier Anzieu and Rene Kaes. In this approach, individuality and collectiveness are articulated on the psychodrama stage. Each group member carries a significant part of the group function. Everything said, whispered, dreamt or imagined by the members becomes the material for re-enactment on the scene of the group.
The connections and contributions of everyone to the group play are shared and discussed in the light of modern psychoanalytic views on groups. Chaque membre du groupe porte une partie importante de la fonction de groupe. This means that multiplied neural networks stay alive by making new connections. Soul-body integrity in psychodrama activates the kinesics memory of the body in all protagonist studies and old traumatic experiences are recalled from the memory through almost true-to-reality scenes activating sense organs as well.
This process necessitates the activation of memories, emotions hippocampus, amygdala, limbic networks in the brain and the most primitive structures along with PFC which is accepted as the most developed structure. Sex is a clue on how we deal with closeness, how we deal with control or surrender and how we manage pleasure. It reflects how vulnerable we allow ourselves to be and how we receive, ask, give or take.
This experiential workshop is designed to give an opportunity for personal exploration and professional development and will help explore our unique erotic blueprint in a safe and supportive environment. The group will examine different ways of working on, analyzing and contextualizing sexuality in a therapeutic setting. We will explore how to create a safe space to deal with the issues around intimacy, vulnerability, pleasure, desire, identity, sexual orientation, gender, sexual preferences, fantasies and erotic dreams.
The ultimate aim in this workshop will be to initiate a transformative process of self awareness so as to playfully rekindle our creativity and desire. Learning Objectives: After attending this workshop, participants will be able to: 1. Describe the alternative action methods presented that could be applied among the physically impaired population; 2. Apply the alternative action methods appropriate for use among the physically impaired population.
This Workshop aims to present methodology for offering psychodrama to people with mobility impairment — inherited or acquired through accident, illness or with age problems. Applying action methods among the physically impaired population can be considered difficult or impossible; therefore, this large diverse group is often excluded from the benefits of the powerful method of psychodrama.
The author of this workshop believes that psychodrama and sociometry have a lot to offer to people with a mobility impairment, with the help of props, imagination and unique adaptations of the method. The creativity of the director and the richness of the method can offer alternative ways to overcome the physical limitations. One of J.
Moreno, , p. People with mobility impairment are a specifically diverse group of our society and creating a space for their culture in the safe environment of a small group is a healing experience in itself e. Often times, telling and hearing personal stories, the group members would easily discover a topic that connects them in their social and cultural roles and the group would benefit from a sociodrama.
The use of music adds a new dimension to the drama. In the moment it arouses feelings and associated memories. We know that music activates more and different areas of the brain. It may be the reason why warm up and dramatic action is faciclitated. In this workshop we shall show and experience how we can use music and movement in psychodrama. Participants will get familiar with a tale of Rabbi Nachman of Breslove through Bibliodrama. Learning objective: After attending this workshop participants will be able to : 1. Describe two main archetypes portrait in the tale and identify how they are part of their own life.
Describe how the story resonate with J. The laboratory offers some experiences of psychodramatic activity with children, with particular attention to the issues of hyperactivity and the difficulty of controlling body and action. This will be followed by a reflection on some important concepts in psychodramatic activity with children: spontaneity and control, communicative alternation, the therapeutic function of the peer group, the therapeutic function of the ritual, the intentional alternation of reality and semi-reality, the artistic and symbolic expressiveness.
Apply the social atom on paper and in action for exploring various relationships of clients with eating disorders. The Magic Mirror is a mystical object that is featured in the story of Snow White, a 19th-century German fairy tale, first published by the Brothers Grimm. Moreno created and introduced the social atom in in his book, Who Shall Survive? At this workshop in a creative way, with the help of Psychodrama — Gestalt techniques, participants will explore the world of their own emotions: their experience and expression.
Theoretical framework In order to be able to survive in this world that is constantly changing, we need to adapt. Managing emotions increases the ability to adapt. Emotion is a brief conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure.
A Feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior and our adaptation. Emotions build our reality by showing us the significance of the events around us for us. It is a body reaction to the changes around us. Emotions can also be caused by thoughts. No matter what has caused the emotions they affect our reality as they affect our response to the external environment. In this way, they affect the quality of our lives The quality of our lives is directly related to: Self-Awareness — The ability for recognition of their own emotions and how they affect their thoughts and behavior, and Self-Management — The ability to recognize and control impulsive feelings and behaviors, manage emotions in healthy ways, take initiative, follow through on commitments, and adapt to changing circumstances.
How can the victim-perpetrator splitting be usefully put in scene? The workshop starts with a short introduction to the model of victim-perpetrator splitting. Stressful experiences caused by maltreatment, abuse, long term neglect or loss of important relations require specific emotional processing capacities and have an emotionally high impact.
During this process so called specific inner victim states traumatic states often emerge. At the same time the personality produces as a coping strategy an antagonistic perpetrator state, which function is to stabilize the person psychologically. The basic underlying psychodynamic can be understood with respect to less traumatic personal experiences.
This workshop offers besides self experience an approach for psychodramatherapeutic work with sexually abusive young offenders and other perpetrators of violence. We would like to tell you about our psychodrama work with a class of architects during a post graduate training course developing in the psychological field the ideas of Christopher Alexander. The context in which we approached problems to develop solutions acknowledges and embraces the complexity, uncertainty and change that are ever more prevalent in our world.
We acknowledged that life takes place by continuously adapting the surrounding environment in an uninterrupted everyday process that predominantly occurs in the dimension of the ordinary. There exists in the natural, cultural and physical world a class of phenomena that are beautiful, the beauty of which has essentially to do with our everyday material and spiritual life.
Beautiful, ordinary spaces have a quality whose value, once explored at the appropriate level, belongs to all human beings, and is good for everyone. Because that quality exists, makers can, at each step in the process of change, add to and expand — rather than detract from and reduce — the original quality. Generally, we define and measure the objective quality of the space that emerges at the level where human beings share a common canon of values that belongs to the collective unconscious.
We created a series of workshops aimed at raising awareness of our own individual and collective feelings. This line of activity was designed to provide the knowledge required to observe, understand and act within a complex system where elements have both individual and interrelated value, and where observation, understanding and action are related to our experience of such elements and their interrelation. Feelings are the gateway that connect our deep Self to the external world: learning to name and recognize them, trust them, and live with them is crucial to our ability to work with others and with the structure of the land.
Vorremmo parlarvi del nostro lavoro di psicodramma con una classe di architetti svoltosi durante un corso di formazione post laurea che ha sviluppato in campo psicologico le idee di Christopher Alexander. This dramatic shock leads to an intense process of dissociation: on one hand, the same year-old adult now has to deal with the realisation that his father had not died in the way he had always thought, on the other, the 8-year-old boy, becoming personified again on the imaginal plane, reveals himself as he discovers his father has hung himself. The adult reflects and understands, empathising with the drama that overtook his father — the child is overcome with despair, anger, incredulity, trying his heart out.
He is inconsolable for what has happened. Fragments of memory and images explode in the emotive chaos of attempting a new recomposition of the episode. The bitter surprise is that everyone knew: his ex-wife, relatives, acquaintances. He realises he has been living in a real-life Truman Show. After years, the lecture will cover who contributed to the journal, who were the publishers, and what followed after. Shakespeare, Hamlet III. That was also the question and the soliloquy of many of my psychosomatic patients.
Is it worth to live this life with all the pain and suffering? In this workshop I will demonstrate how we took arms and turned the hopeless static position into a creative life worth living. In my psychodrama groups the patients played out what was behind their diseases. The spiral process of psychodrama helped to find the origin of the symptom building and the connections with the painful traumatic life events.
In this workshop you can experience the method and techniques we developed in my psychosomatic work:. Changing their diet, their location, changing physically :developing lungs from gills,arms from appendages,;walking upright If something needed to change for survival it did. This workshop aims to draw attention to a social organization which impels us to the search for a type of life organization, for the satisfaction of our attachment needs; recognition; belonging; acceptance; and finally well-being or even happiness, by means of conjugality relations or love relations. On the other hand, is also underlined that this kind of relationships is so conditioned by the religious, legal regulatory bodies, and even by science that becomes possible to typify the outbreaks of malaise leading to support requests.

It is also a very important aspect in communication, verbal and not verbal, formal as well as informal, in couples and in groups, in peacetime and in wartime. Emotional communication can prevent, manage, and resolve conflicts. It helps to loosen difficult situations and to get out of the vicious circle of frozen relationships.

Voci negate: un laboratorio tratto da un esperimento di costruzione di uno spettacolo teatrale partendo dalla metodologia psicodrammatica. Denied voices: a workshop based on an experiment in constructing a theatrical performance, starting from the psychodramatic methodology. The inner research moves in the internal theater, trying to find a part of himself that is struggling to find a way of expression, a stage, a place in the world.
The protagonist plays this part in his scene with the aim of earning his expressive path. The part of himself takes more definition, also through the interactions with his own counter-roles, and his subjective truth is affirmed on the scene. One observes it, makes it aware and transforms the part of oneself into a character through theatrical language.
From this we build a narrative frame that contains it. The study is quantitative and qualitative. There are unaccompanied minor boys in the project between the age of 15 and EXIT focuses on enhancing movement, imagination, engagement, connection, here and now, safety and responsibility. A film with the participants participating in the early intervention will be shown and the results will be presented and discussed. The lecture and film will give the participants an opportunity to understand community art work with participants who suffer from trauma, stress and loss.
A workshop to explore gender identity and stereotypes with psychodrama, between temporal variables generations in comparison and spatial variables nationalities in dialogue. The experience of psychodrama in individual therapeutic work and couple therapy offers many interests. Doubling can have the effect of touching the emotional experience, of feeling understood, of reinforcing an identity effect. The role change allows the protagonist to experience what an antagonist is going through in the therapeutic work.
Together, the interest of this role taking will be decided. Psychodramatic games allow us to experience from within what has been played in a scene in the history of the past or present protagonist s. The seminar will provide an opportunity to experience these different aspects of individual and couple therapy. It will be in French with simultaneous translation into English. The laboratory used active methods of group work and psychodrama and playback theater methodologies with the aim of promoting encounter and communication experiences among participants able to overcome linguistic and cultural differences.
Some universal symbolic elements have served as a reference to connect stories and experiences lived by different people in different cultural contexts, connected to each other as experiences of the common history of every human being, small particles of the greatest universal human history. The music, the movement and the dance offered a great support to the activities of the laboratory and allowed to realize a theatrical performance that debuted at MIToS the Italian Meeting of Teatro Sociale in Lucca and which was repeated at the Teatro Bolognini of Pistoia in the initiatives of Pistoia Capital of Culture In the theatrical performance the stories of some refugees with the live accompaniment of the Connexions band were staged, a multi-ethnic musical group that was formed during the workshop.
The Connexions band has performed some concerts for the Municipality of Pistoia and still performs musical performances in the territorial area to connect, socialize, raise citizenship awareness on issues related to immigration and as part of the integration activities of the SPRAR project, has obtained funding which allowed them to record their repertoire in a musical CD. In the laboratory, activated within the community, the psychodrama methodologies were the foundation of group work: they offered participants a good base of knowledge and mutual trust.
The theater of spontaneity was instead the area through which the group of participants was able to experiment and rediscover their creativity to design and create a theatrical performance that represented the conclusive action of the laboratory. The theatrical performance was represented in two public theatrical spaces under the patronage and co-promotion of the Municipality of Pistoia. It was also a recovery with the camera to be able to look at it from an external point of view, see yourself from outside while living, making a video that was screened before the final theatrical performance was staged.
Workshop esperienziale sul ruolo professionale. Musica improvvisata ed esplorazione del movimento spontaneo. Tali elementi saranno i nuclei di lavoro del workshop, che si propone di accrescere la consapevolezza dei processi somatici di base in gioco nella relazione di cura, di declinare il proprio ruolo professionale in una dimensione personale e corporea, per orientare al meglio le proprie risorse nelle relazioni di cura in ambito educativo e psicoterapeutico.
Workshop on professional role. Improvised love music and movement exploration in spontaneous attitude. Care relationships let us very often in unusual communication systems, difficult to decode. We try to anticipate answers with impulsive actions, to hand on symbolic meanings, blended to somatic processes in a sort of proto-menthal area. Expecially in disability, non-verbal elements become central about acting out behaviours. During the workshop we focus on those key elements, working on consciousness somatic processes effecting on care relationship.
Professional role will be discovered in the somatic as much as in personal aspects, to better direct professional expertise in therapeutic and educational work. In private practice with neurotic patients and in the public with psy-chotics, Jungian psychodrama returns a significant therapeutic experi-ence to body, movement, action. Psychotic patients — whose ability to express themselves verbally can be reduced, inadequate or compromised by delirious contents — return to co-municate from bodily expression as a vehicle of thought.
We had strong transformations in many countries: economic crisis, traumatic migrations, unemployment, climatic change, environmental disasters, terrorism, wars! How is the Anima Mundi? We will share together dreams, memories and expectations to investigate personal and collective unconsciousness reactions to these phenomena and what suggestions the wisdom of dreams will give us. He will demonstrate the dream incubation technique according to the ancient medicine of Asclepion and the utilization of opening and closing rituals to contain the unconsciousness force and elaborate collective trauma.
Psychodrama can be used to create a safe place and paths of change for the most severe traumatization. Psychodrama creates a place to act out unprocessed trauma within the containment of therapy in order to stop the obsessive repetition of the past. Jungian psychodrama can help to play traumatic experience trough symbolic representations and the wisdom of dream-play.
Often victim of trauma split out their feelings and in the play it is important to play the role of the heart or the role of the feeling of the protagonist to integrate the emotional dimension. Two or three dreams will be played. Dreams convey the transformative wisdom of the unconscious, allowing emotionaly charged material to become easly accessibile to the consciousness, activating intrapsychic and intersubjective change. The group will take place within a ritualistic framework, creating a safe space to advance personal and social healing.
Abbiamo avuto forti trasformazioni in molti paesi: crisi economiche, migrazioni traumatiche, disoccupazione, cambiamenti climatici, disastri ambientali, terrorismo, guerre! Verranno rappresentati due o tre sogni. Forty-five years after his death, J. Moreno will have his name once again uttered by many during this International Conference. Nevertheless, his books are unfortunately still not well known, and his ideas are not always acknowledged. In the same vein, most of the books already published on the subject continue to favor the definition of the method as therapy.
It is about going back to the modern roots of psychodrama and making use of the words of the creator of the method himself. Participants will also be invited to look at the other side of the tree, and will have the opportunity to come into direct contact with the indispensable sociodrama. But we know from our experiments that these two forms of role-playing can never be truly separated. Every role has two sides, a private and a collective side.
The impact of early attachment patterns on development of memory systems and restructuring of memories in psychodrama. The most important early interpersonal patterns are coded on subcortical neural structures which rapidly complete their development soon after the birth. Development of cortical structures takes a gradual process which continue across several years of life.
Early mother-child attachment patterns secure or insecure develop mostly in the first year literally before the development of cortical neural systems which are necessary for explicit memory. Since the only memory system is implicit memory in the first year, early attachment experiences are far from conscious and declerative retrieval.
Therefore in order to work on insecure attachment patterns in psychotherapy, it is necessary to track the traces of senses, emotions and actions through a close contact with the body. Psychodrama is a psychotherapy system which fulfills this need because it enables us to work on somatic, psychic and social roles simultaneously. Affective and body reactions from implicit memory are integrated with episodic memory scenes and semantic clarifications of explicit memory on psychodramatic trips.
This is at the same time an integration of memory systems which is possible by means of action insight. This presentation is about power of Psychodrama on integrating different memorial systems in relation with early attachment patterns. It is an interpersonal psychotherapy system which provides us with a secure base for restructuring insecure attachment patterns and forming new healing bonds with life.
Child Abuse Survivars Children involved physical, emotional and gender violence beleive that, they have no way out. It is possible to empower them by group therapy. We planned a group with 12 girls between years old and had 14 group sessions with them. It was an encounter group. We used psychodramatic warming up techniques. After four meetings they started to talk each other about their life.
They helped each other to gain power. They shared solution technigues. Group was a safe place for them. At the end, they felt more strong themselves to solve their problems. My presentation involve all this process, techniques used and successfulness. La messa in scena nello psicodramma delle immagini oniriche, sorte spontaneamente dalla nostra psiche, in questa fase di stagnazione mentale ed energetica, consentono di aggirare il pantano del malessere costantemente sentito, ri-contattando le forze vitali presente in noi. The laboratory proposes an experience of psychodrama connected to the dimension of the dream, able to remove the continuous brooding of the thought towards the fragility of the person in front of the torment of detachment.
The staging in the psychodrama of dream images, spontaneously arose from our psyche, in this phase of mental and energetic stagnation, allows us to get around the quagmire of constantly felt malaise, re-contacting the vital forces present in us. The group space, the sharing of multiple dreams, the vivacity of the psychodramatic language offer the frame to resume a new feeling.
A daytime scene that preceded the dream to highlight the focal problem that activated the dream 2. The representation of the dream itself with the necessary changes of role to give expression to the perspectives of the inner parts of the dreamer activated by the event 3. One or more scenes that connect the recent event with the analytical path and the identification of the protagonist.
Nello Psicodramma Analitico Individuativo a orientamento junghiano il lavoro sul sogno si fonda su tre pilastri: 1. Una scena diurna che ne ha preceduto il sogno, per mettere in luce il problema focale che ha attivato il sogno stesso 2. Il poster evidenzia le varie fasi del processo di elaborazione durante la sessione ed inoltre i vari scritti inviati via mail al direttore dai partecipanti ausiliari successivi alla sessione, contenenti le reazioni emotive e i sogni stimolati dal lavoro svolto.
Poster theme: use of group psychodrama to process trauma in a woman after suffering physical aggression by her companion. Contents: the poster portrays the network collaboration of social worker, family mediator, therapist, psychodrama therapist helping a mother of three abused by her partner, and a long psychodrama session especially set up with the aid of 20 volunteer auxiliaries familiar with psychodrama.
The request for intervention came from a fellow psychotherapist treating a patient with difficulties sleeping and relating to her own daughters after severe trauma. The psychodrama might help the woman access her own emotional sides blocked by the trauma with the reassuring aid of the welcoming group. The poster highlights the various moments of the elaboration process during the session and also the writings sent following the session via email to the director by the auxiliary participants, containing the emotional reactions and the dreams aroused by the work done.
Conduzione di un gruppo di psicodramma analitico freudiano a indirizzo lacaniano secondo la metodologia di G. Emerge nel soggetto un tratto inconscio,un sapere insaputo. La catena dei significanti passa anche attraverso sguardi, gesti, suoni lavorando per concatenazione e successione di scene. Starting with the question about how the clinical intervention with elderly patients is connected with the changing during an old age stage, it wants to explore the contribution of psychodrama to the development tasks and to the typically themes of this life stage, including social isolation, mourning, physical deterioration and changing of social roles.
Qui si scontrano con la scena traumatica. Sociometry is the glue that holds the group together. It establishes the link between individuals in the group setting, creating safety and developing an atmosphere that promotes spontaneity and creativity. It builds a framework to hold the intensity of Psychodramatic action. Group Psychotherapy promotes cognitive integration and the reconfiguration of our intrapsychic roles and interpersonal connections.
This triadic system allows people to address the challenges of living in a world where technology can stand in the way of spontaneity and creativity, not allowing us to become fully human. Through action and didactic presentation participants will have opportunities to learn about and experience this creative and multi-layered process. Theater techniques can help the Psychodramatist to facilitate staging, develop character, guide auxiliaries to expand their roles and find objectives for their protagonists.
Theatrical principles can help to create story and enhance the tension between the protagonist and the antagonist in a psychodrama. Adding more drama to the process helps to intensify the experience of both the protagonist and the group. It promotes greater spontaneity and creativity through emotional intensity as it increases the stakes for everyone involved. This presenter who originally came from the world of theater will use her expertise to help psychodrama directors enhance their directing skills using theatrical tools, techniques and principles to deepen the drama and expand the emotional experience of everyone involved in the process.
And do we want?
About the author(s)
Especially in psychodrama? The question is it possible to prove effectiveness of psychotherapy, and in particular of psychodrama, through scientific research is still unanswered. Is it enough just to believe in our method? Do we want to prove its effectiveness scientifically? There are a lot of peculiarities concerning the usual design, randomization, duration, blindness, number of participants, motivation, the role of the therapist, the usage of nosological entities, etc.
Key words: scientific research, proving effectiveness, psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychodrama. Di Maurizio Fajeti e Roberta Mineo In questi ultimi decenni si registra un travagliato percorso disidentitario del maschio. Abstract: As we challenge the status quo of the power relations of women and men in different institutions, many things would pop up to our awareness. The binary concept of gender is overcome by a see-saw pattern of masculinity and femininity within the same individual, reflecting the richness of diversity and the complexity of dynamics as well.
This workshop will open the way towards a deeper look at the meanings of gender identity, with consideration of gender stereotypes, gender justice, and gender equality concerns, in addition to gender empowerment. In a here and now experience, and with the use of creative arts, participants will be invited to examine the previous conceptions and to reflect upon their personal attitudes and beliefs.
Possible applications will be discussed. The workshop emphasizes the importance of the work on the adult level: the therapist, the consultant and the educator, which can affect multiple layers of society, down to the children and up to the decision makers. It will be run in English and Italian, but a lot more languages are welcome to join. In the first session sociometry was used to discover and find out more information about group members. A group of 25 out of 50 young men in the ages 18 to 24 who had committed various crimes were chosen through a simple random sampling method.
All the young men who were over the age of 18 and could no longer be housed in the juvenile prison lived in the place called Home of Safety. The room where we did the work had 2 armed guards, the psychodramatist and 3 assistants who helped with translation and any help needed in motivating the group to do the activities.
In India juvenile justice board which comes under the ministry of women and child development is responsible for safety and upkeep of children who are in conflict with the law. Fights between the gangs were quite frequent. The overall objective of the psychodrama session was to build compassion and empathy among the participants.
Il sole e la pioggia penetrano deboli nella vegetazione sento oscuri fruscii venire da ogni direzione qui vi sono migliaia di animali che volano camminano strisciano. No problems sir…sure no problems mi guardo intorno. Sanchez aspetta disposizioni. Resto paralizzato. Look sir , many bats! Oh cristo anche i pipistrelli ci sono e grandi pure. Su forza On y va! I pipistrelli dormono beati riscendiamo le scale molto lentamente.
