The Relational Self. (SYDNEY)

Event Cost: 

The relational self is the foundation of human functioning. How this develops can be seen by the pattern and quality of relationships that exist for each individual. In psychodrama this is known collectively as a person's social and cultural atom, the unit of society that sustains them. Yet, within that personalised society there are relationships that remain difficult, conflicted or stuck in the past. In many cases, the necessary developmental stages have been neglected or distorted in some way and the effects are still visible, such as in blocks to intimacy, and various forms of relational defences. Psychodrama is particularly helpful for social atom repair, through the use of methods that replicate aspects of vital steps in human development, and secondly, in retrieving projections that get in the way of relating to others. The goal is to reclaim the ability to live easily in relationship, in the here and now.
