Integrating Light and Shadow of our Ancestors

Transgenerational Psychodrama, Genosociogram and Dancetherapy

with Manuela Maciel and Leandra Perrotta

Transgenerational Psychodrama works with family co - uncounscious.

The concept of Co-Unconscious from J.L. Moreno is one of the main key to our understanding of what is called now “transgenerational links".

This is also related to “unfinished business”, with trauma and death, with “wound of love” events that tend to repeat themselves, following the rule of “unfinished tasks” that will be perpetuated in the family over and over until its meaning is finally clarified.

Our goal is to clarify and remove the psychological undesirable invisible loyalties and “scripts of life” from people of previous generations with whom there was some “unfinished business” or traumatic event. It is also to make people more aware of their resources and positive legacies they have received from their families.

We will use active methods such as psychodrama, toys sculptures, genosociogram and also we will have a short theoretical presentation about the main concepts involved.
