How can the victim-perpetrator splitting be usefully put in scene?
The workshop starts with a short introduction to the model of victim-perpetrator splitting.
Stressful experiences caused by maltreatment, abuse, long term neglect or loss of important relations require specific emotional processing capacities and have an emotionally high impact. During this process so called specific inner victim states (traumatic states) often emerge. At the same time the personality produces as a coping strategy an antagonistic perpetrator state, which function is to stabilize the person psychologically. The basic underlying psychodynamic can be understood with respect to less traumatic personal experiences.
This workshop offers besides self experience an approach for psychodramatherapeutic work with sexually abusive young offenders and other perpetrators of violence.
