ADDITIONAL INFO

About Psychodrama --

 

Psychodrama involves acting out

(role-playing) characters and situations

that are on participants' minds.

 

Imaginary and symbolic characters may

also be involved.

 

Psychodrama could be done for the

sakes of:

* Creativity and fun.

* Self, staff, and community exploration

and sharing.

* Team building.

* Therapy and healing.

* Etc.

 

Psychodrama gets one in the habit of

speaking dialogue,

* between characters, and

* between multiple inner aspects of

a single character.

 

***

 

Jungian Psychodrama --

 

Dr Carl Jung (1875-1961) was a co-founder of

Psycho-analysis, along with Dr Sigmund Freud.

 

Dr Freud focussed on ways a person is shaped

by experiences with one's parents during one's

early childhood. Dr Jung considered a much

wider canvas, including one's cultural

background and surroundings.

 

Dr Jung's theory and method involve,

* The individual and collective unconscious.

* Female and male aspects of the personality.

* Archetypal images, events, and relationships.

* Fairytales, Legends, Epics, and Myths.

* Metaphors and symbols.

* Integration of aspects of one's self,

and integration of one's self with the universe.

(The Jungian term for this integration is

"individuation".)

 

A form of role-playing -- which Dr Jung called

"Active Imagination" -- is actually a part of

his 3-step therapeutic Psychology method,

which is explained here.  This could include

participants speaking to and as characters

from epics, fairytales, etc, as well as

imaginary characters.

 

Jung's method assists one to learn

ways to think and "live mythically" --

with one foot in the ordinary human

world, and one foot in realms beyond.

This kind of thinking could help one

to integrate and synthesize various

aspects of one's experience.

 

These Workshops would demonstrate

ways that working with Epics, Fairytales,

and other traditional stories could help one to

 

recognise the power of archetypal elements

outside and inside oneself, and then put one’s

personal experiences into a larger perspective. 

Understanding the functioning of archetypal

characters and situations within oneself is a

way of synchronising the beating of one’s

own heart with the rhythm of the cosmos.

Practice of Jung's Psychology. Garden City,

NY, Doubleday.  1972.  pp. 127-8.)
