On December 7, 2019 starts at EPINIO by Elena Boukouvala, a closed drama therapy team, with the goals of personal search, emotional development, but also the acquaintance with the method of Drama and Movement Therapy. The team will be informed each time by the needs and interests of its participants. It will take place on Saturday 17.30 - 19.00 twice a month and the first cycle will be completed in 13 meetings. The first two meetings of the group will be open and will accept new members. Then the group will be closed. Through role playing, but also the promotion of different forms and ways of movement, dramatization of stories and musical expression, participants will be given the opportunity to experiment with alternative ways of behaving and dealing with life situations. In a non-confrontational psychotherapeutic context, based on the knowledge that difficulties can be revealed through metaphorical concepts, team members will have the opportunity to relive their personal experiences and experiment in search of new solutions and possibilities. Through the security provided by the use of the arts, they will be able to express all kinds of feelings and thoughts, in order to develop their self-confidence, to get to know themselves in depth but also to facilitate their communication with other people. This group will also be an opportunity to get acquainted with the method of Drama and Movement Therapy, for anyone interested in attending the postgraduate Drama Therapy training program. The dates of the team are: 7/12, 21/12, 11/1, 25/1, 8/2, 22/2, 7/3, 21/3, 4/4, 25/4, 9/5 , 23/5, 13/6 and time 17:30 - 19:00. The cost of each session is 25E (20E for students).
