    Brigitte Baron-Preter will introduce the delegates to Scenodrama, a model using group analytic principles in therapeutic play with children. This new approach has been particularly efficient for treating children with psychological troubles and attachment issues.

    The evening is for anyone interested in group therapies with children and families.


    What is Scenodrama?

    Scenodrama is a group-analytic setting based on play, for psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive rehabilitation and the expressive pedagogy. It is designed for children aged 4 - 10 who are suffering from cognitive, learning and language disorders and / or emotional attachments or post-traumatic troubles.

    During the play the children are organised around a small round table with a bowl of water in the middle and individual spaces. The setting intends to reinforce a secure containment through and within the group. Its setting favours metaphorization thanks to its containing effect and creative use of specific objects given to each child to stage and enact their personal stories. Consequently, it stimulates the process of symbolization, language, communication and socialization.
