This Introduction to Psychodramatic Bodywork Workshop, for professionals only, combines two forms of psychotherapy: bodywork and psychodrama. The former involves safe touch to help individuals connect with the messages that are held in the body as pain, numbness and/or illness, to raise awareness about the ways in which we block and defend ourselves, and to increase somatic and emotional awareness and build capacity for secure attachment and greater intimacy. In the latter, blocked spontaneity from earlier traumas is unblocked and re-integrated through dramatic action methods.

Based on the teachings of Chinese Medicine, this Introductory Psychodramatic Bodywork Workshop will offer you information about how the emotions of anger, fear and sadness are stored in the body and teach specific techniques to recognize those feelings and clear that energy to make room for joy.Jean works with a skilled team of assistants who perform skits and demonstrations that help illustrate the theory, and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun and fosters learning in an easy, natural manner.

The Introductory Level Psychodramatic Bodywork Workshop focuses on:

  • Understanding, witnessing and experiencing the emotional release of anger, fear and sadness – from barely expressed to fully released
  • Learning where the body holds anger, fear and sadness when they are unexpressed
  • Learning and practicing guidelines for safe touch
  • Increasing our comfort with the use of safe touch
  • Increasing our capacity for healthy attachment and greater intimacy
  • Increasing our somatic mindfulness
  • Experiencing the integration of bodywork in the structure of a psychodrama
  • Understanding how the holding of emotion affects the recovery process
  • Closure theory
