Body Dialogue

With Linda Ciotola

The body dialogue action structure can be used in both individual and group settings. It provides clinical and non-clinical support for aging, body image, eating, self-harm, and substance use disorders. For: psychodramatists, psychologists, mental health professionals working with eating disorders, therapists, and social workers. The course also provides help with self-exploration for trauma survivors, wanting to rebuild the broken connection with the body.

Participants will be able to:

-Identify the problem related to the body or create the contract with the protagonist (the work that needs to be done).

-Direct a protagonist through their Body Dialogue.

-Learn the most effective techniques that work with this action structure.

-Identify the original problem (how the bond was broken).

-Create a correct and safe environment for the protagonist to work on the broken bond between Self and Body.
