Seminar “Harm and responsibility: A process work approach to repairing the relationship.”
(Jan Dworkin, Neus Andreu – assisting)
October 18-20 in Barcelona
* SEMINAR OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
It is very common to feel wounded or hurt in relationships. It is equally common to be accused of causing harm to others.
Recovering from the hurt we experience and repairing the hurt we create are two of the greatest challenges of relationship life.
Few of us have been trained to be accountable for our impact on others. We either feel victimized, guilty or in denial. In addition, we tend to overemphasize the psychological aspects of our behavior and underestimate the impact of collective and political dimensions. We mistakenly
believe that what happens between us is only a private matter.
In this seminar we will learn how to be accountable in relationships– in moment to moment, real-time interactions, as well as when discussing the past. We’ll gain greater understanding about the impact of collective traumas on our relationship lives. Hidden under our intense emotions, we
will uncover and work with history, at the same time, learning skills to make our current relationships more satisfying and sustainable.
Some topics we will address:
• the impact of intersectionality and unequal power on relationship
• skills and attitudes for authentic apology: what, when and how
• facilitating strong accusations and experience of hurt
• awareness of the shifting roles of victim, perpetrator and witness
• creating safety for all roles and parties
• identifying history in the here and now
We will present and practice tools and attitudes that can be used by mediators, therapists, facilitators, educators, activists, politicians and parents. In addition they will be helpful to anyone seeking to improve their personal or professional relationships or develop greater ease and proficiency sitting in the fires of strong interaction and conflict.
