In this workshop, we will present a theoretical and experiential taste of the possibilities that music offers in group facilitation.
Music, by its very nature, allows all channels of the Process Oriented paradigm to be activated. Often described as the universal language, Music speaks directly to our inner emotional world, and also creates a common space where relationship is possible.
It can be used as an “environmental facilitator” that can affect the field in a group-conflict situation, to help navigate the shift between the different phases, particularly to support participants to access phases 3 and 4, in the midst of intense conflict, with fluidity and creativity.
A small group will be invited to work in the middle to be facilitated using Music Therapy tools to complement the traditional Processwork approach. External participants will be provided with a number of criteria and guidelines to observe the group process and record their impressions. Following the group process, there will be space for reflection, feedback and discussion.
