|PDF - Accepted Version|
The purpose of this study is to explore how the embodiment of fictionalized stories, based on my work with sexually abused children, can help me to achieve a deeper understanding of my own process as a therapist. I used the EPR (Embodiment, Projection, and Role) and the Creative Expressive Model as drama therapy methods during the sessions. These methods not only provided the children with safety and distance but also enabled them to disclose their feelings and become empowered. By applying these same methods in my creative process and performing fictionalized excerpts of clients' stories I also was provided with enough safety and distance to allow myself a deeper understanding of my counter-transferences.
