Enactment and Narrative in Group Psychotherapy: The Unobtrusive Relational Group Analyst – Robert Grossmark, PhDEvent Description:
For so long psychotherapy has focused on what can be talked about and understood between people. Actions and behaviors have generally been classed as “acting out” and the focus has generally been to put feelings into words. But what about parts of the psyche that have never had a form, representation or words? These are areas that contain the sequelae of trauma and neglect. Robert Grossmark will present an approach to group and individual work that privileges what is enacted wordlessly between group members and between therapist and patient. Working within this register he companions patients and groups in their worlds of unexpressed pain and trauma and finds a new enacted form of narrative and healing.
