EXA Advanced Seminar: Healing the Wounds of History through the Arts

School of Professional Psychology and Health EXA 5527 1.00

In this course, the instructor will demonstrate his approach to intercultural conflict transformation and collective trauma using techniques drawn from expressive arts therapy, drama therapy, psychodrama, sociodrama and Playback Theatre. Through experiential exercises integrated with didactic explanations of his model, the instructor will guide participants through an embodied exploration of the following questions: How do cultures emotionally integrate a legacy of perpetration or victimization? How do we prevent the rage, guilt and shame of one generation from haunting a people for generations to come? The expressive arts can provide a bridge between personal and collective experience and help people master complex feelings, heal deep wounds, and put ghosts of history to rest. Priority to EXA students; MCPE 6601
