This didactic and experiential course will introduce a model of Jungian Psychodrama. It will encompass the exploration of theory, methodology, and techniques. Dreams, as messengers of the transformative wisdom hidden in the unconscious, serve as a vehicle to access emotionally charged material, making it available to conscious awareness and facilitating intrapsychic and intersubjective change. The group sessions will be conducted within a ritualistic framework, fostering a safe and conducive space for personal and social healing.Throughout the course, participants will learn how to work with dreams in the context of online psychodrama. The course will cover a spectrum of dream categories, including symbolic dreams, visio dreams, nightmares, oracle dreams, recurring dreams, and social dreams. Additionally, participants will explore the application of analytic free associations in analytic psychodrama. The course conductor will introduce imaginative and creative techniques rooted in the Jungian Psychodrama model.Jungian Psychodrama draws inspiration from Carl Jung's analytical theory of dreams, delving into concepts such as the personal and collective unconsciousness, archetypal images, and individuation.The conductor will also present innovative warming-up techniques, which are not only valuable for psychodrama therapy but also adaptable to transcultural and organizational contexts. These techniques will seamlessly blend Moreno's sociometry with Jungian active imagination exercises.Participants will have the opportunity to witness the dream incubation technique, influenced by the ancient healing practices of Asclepion, and engage in opening and closing rituals. In each session, various dreams will be enacted according to the Jungian model, with different protagonists taking the stage.Following the final sharing, a narrative observation process will be employed to convey the essence of the dreams that were enacted. This narrative style will enrich the dramatizations with mythopoeic amplifications and seek to establish connections between individual themes and the collective unconsciousness of the group.This comprehensive course promises a deep exploration of Jungian Psychodrama and the transformative power of dreams within a supportive and structured environment.
