Image, Metaphor and Psychodance: methodological pathways in Psychodrama

  • Amelia Coppel
Keywords: Image, Metaphor, Psychodance, Neural representation, Cerebral hemispheres

Abstract

The article discusses different methodological paths that have proven therapeutic: the construction of images, the use of metaphors and psychodance. Likewise, evidence from the latest scientific research finally values image, as it deserves in the configuration of mental or neural contents with thought and conscience as their basis. In addition, how the use of image in the therapeutic field provides transmission of material from the protagonist such as it is, since the use only of language leads to the contamination of the content of the therapist with the patient. The word is only one; on the other hand, the image contained in the word is multiple.
