Jungian Psychodrama Workshops in July and August – Chennai

Know your ‘WHY’ ?

Here is an opportunity for you to experience the combination of Jungian Psychology and Psychodrama. Jungian psychology utilises Symbolic Images and Stories as found in Dreams, Fairytales, Epics, and Myths  which can be used to further connect the individual to society, history, and the entire universe.

Psychodrama is essentially a group action method that helps a person to embrace one’s own capabilities. This could be used in clinical setting (hospitals, therapy centers), non-clinical setting like a business establishment in team building, conflict management, stress management, identifying and working with stress, improving communication, building trust, identifying issues etc. This is a spontaneous and creative method which is used by certified psychodramtists who are otherwise called the Psychodrama director.

A director enables or facilitates a re-enactment of real life situations, past incidents / situations or an inner mental process but, acting them out in the present time.
