Még írok majd a többiekről, leginkább talán más nemzetek táncterapeutáiról, szokásokról...
The workshop provides insight to somatic based expressive therapy
(IKT), that is a primarily movement focused group therapy approach,
which may incorporate other modalities, such as drama, dance, painting,
Clients are encouraged to explore their responses, reactions,
and insights via pictures, sounds, explorations, and encounters with
art processes. Artistic abilities are not required in order to benefit from
expressive arts therapy. Instead, it works through the use of senses and
through imaginative processes. Additionally, the relationship between the
clients, the therapist and the process are also essential.
Through expressive therapies we may contact the implicit memory,
where emotional and affective – sometimes traumatic – presymbolic and
preverbal experiences of the primary mother-infant relations are stored.
The workshop is a playful investigation. We are looking for possibilities
to transfer movement and feelings into picture. We build on Bucci’s model
of emotional communication, developed in the context of her theory
of multiple coding and the referential process. The referential process
is a bidirectional function connecting the diverse sensory, somatic, and
motor representations of the subsymbolic system with imagery and words.
In the workshop first a special technique called body mapping will be
introduced. Body Mapping is a creative therapeutic tool that combines
bodily experiences and visual artistic expression. It involves painting
a life-size image of one’s body onto a large surface using colors, pictures,
symbols and words to draft an inner map of experiences lived through the
body. Later, space for sharing, discussing the experiences and reflecting
on them will be provided. We will examine the effects and emotions the
images may evoke and the memories they may recall.
