4 day workshop: Bold Move! Role Reversal as an Act of Courage. (SYDNEY)

Event Cost: 
$950. Existing trainees $780

From a psychodramatic perspective, role reversal assists the child to build empathy and form meaningful connections, capacities that contribute to the development of intimacy in later life. Yet in psychodramatic enactments, many role reversals are partial or transactional, as if we do not really want to understand or enter the world of the other. Role reversal requires the willingness to consciously choose to empty oneself, making room to genuinely experience the other’s reality, and then to return to the primary self and integrate new insights into the personality. This is a bold move! Especially when we are resistant to being affected by the other. In this workshop, we will apply the Morenian framework that underpins the development of the relational self to understand our capacities for role reversal. And, in so doing, assist the self to expand in response to relational challenges.
