This didactic and experiential group will show a model of Jungian Psychodrama. Theory, methodology and techniques will be demonstrated and explained. Dreams convey the transformative wisdom of the unconscious, allowing emotionally charged material to become easily accessible 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
In the seminar would be presented some imaginative and creative techniques that are used in the model of Jungian Psychodrama. Jungian psychodrama is a theory of psychodramatic technique, articulated in a complex model of conduction and observation. It derives from Jung’s analytical theory on dreams, from his concepts of the personal and collective unconsciousness, of archetypal images and individuation.
The conductor will provide a brief explanation of the theory behind Jungian Psychodrama, active imagination and play dream with creative techniques. Then a more consistent experiential part will follow. The conductor will also present new creative warming up techniques – useful for psychodrama therapy and suitable for transcultural as well as organizational work - integrating Moreno’s sociometry and Jungian active imagination exercises.
He will demonstrate the dream incubation technique according to the ancient medicine of Asclepion and the utilization of opening and closing rituals. Some dreams will be played according to the Jungian model in which different protagonists play on the scene every session.
After the final sharing, there will be a narrative observation which will communicate the sense of the dreams which have been played, using a narrative style. It will enrich the plays with mythopoeic amplifications and will try to connect individual themes to the group’s collective unconsciousness.
