Fairy tales can be particularly useful as they can be understood on two levels at once: the conscious and unconscious.
This workshop begins by briefly looking at:
- The process of storytelling: theory of mind and menatlisation
- Symbolism in tales: social constructs and archetypal imagery.
The group will then spend the majority of time thinking about the story of Cinderella:
* Grimm and other versions
* Sibling rivalry
* Splitting - good mother versus wicked stepmother
* Symbols and Social Constructs
- Class and Elitism
- Feminism and Servitude
- The handsome Prince
- Happily Ever After
It is hoped with a fresh perspective and a playful gaze therapists will feel inspired to be more confident in working creatively with clients, either directly or when reflecting in their supervision spaces.
