  • Ethnic conflicts rage on and perpetuate worldwide and were the subject of the International Group Psychotherapy Congress in London 1998. This Sociodramatic work aims to investigate the presence of this kind of cross-cultural clash between us, Brazilians, since Brazil is a multiethnic country formed from the immigration of various cultures.

    METHODOLOGY: I will use the socio-Psychodramatic techniques to pretentiously “treat humanity, as longed Jacob L. Moreno, or, at least, get outline::
    A- the wisdom and pride that we all carry from our tribes;
    B- scenes of humiliation and shame associated with this ethnic issues;
    C- what we have learned on these conflicting situations and, finally.
    D- how to repair these ethnic pains to avoid harmful revenge behaviors and retaliation.

  • In this workshop I will discuss the issue of domestic violence, its incidence, prevalence and inter and multi-generational consequences.
    I will also highlight the issue of child abuse, proposing working with the inner child of the adults to handle the defenses erected in these situations.
    I will, finally, describe the narcissistic-borderline defenses very common nowadays, and propose psychodrama as an experiential theoretical approach to respectfully work with abused patients.

    METHODOLOGY: 
    I will use a mix of teaching techniques in this workshop: theoretical exposition with the use of data-show, Sociodrama with the students and I will also supervise clinical cases.

  • The objective of this workshop is to discuss the unhealthy part of the so called “help others occupation” and the relationship between therapist stress and professional abuse. The author discusses whether the choice of profession is really a choice or a target announced from childhood, through the dysfunctions of the psychotherapist origin family. Systemic forces that act on the professionals of these areas are also highlighted, such as: pressures from the client and its pathology; adverse working conditions; poor sociometric insertion of the professional; demands of affection and attention of the current family; family origin unsolved issues ; etc. Rosa Cukier emphasizes the need of self–care by the psychotherapist as a condition “si ne qua non” to actually “help each other.”

    METHODOLOGY: 
    I intend to make a quick practical experience to raise awareness among colleagues about this issue followed by a theoretical exposition.

    NUMBER OF PEOPLE: 

    Unlimited.

    MATERIALS REQUIRED: 

    1- Date show.
  • I intend with this workshop stimulate the sharing of feelings of anger. Physiologically anger is a normal feeling and impossible to avoid. It signals that something displeases us, it is unfair, unequal and that we want a change in the situation. If however we can not help but feel anger, but we can control their expression, avoiding unnecessary excesses often abusive and disproportionate to situations and that lead us often to hurt the people we love and eventually break important relations.

    METHODOLOGY: 
    I will use Sociodrama to delineate and elaborate the many different ways people use to express feelings of anger. This will be followed by an brief theoretical exposition of a text from Dr. Adam Blather on how to play the discordant role.

    MATERIALS REQUIRED: 

    1- Date show.
  • Envy is a universal and timeless human phenomenon. It is part of the structure of the human psyche and acts on human culture and social organization.
    It is one of the biggest taboos of humanity, perhaps only equivalent to sexuality in the XIX century. Forbidden by the Bible, as a capital sin, it is a feeling that has to be kept hidden, which makes its difficult to study. 
    Envy is what lays behind many of the ideologies that preach equality, and has motivated crimes, and historical and political revolutions. 
    Well, we are all different; we must learn to deal with these differences. Is this possible? As you learn to deal with differences? How to coexist better with the primary injustice of human existence? What to do when I feel jealous? How to deal with other people’s envy? Did I tease the envy of others? Envy can hurt me; the famous “fat eye”? These are the questions that drive me to research this topic.
    This workshop is a psychosociodrama of the feeling of Envy, and aims to uncover the shame that surrounds this topic, and elaborate this issue.

    METHODOLOGY: 
    Psychosociodrama.
