Transforming Violence. Working with young adults with complex needs and violent offenders

With Michael Chase

Tuesday 26th June 2018

7.30pm

What is the nature of violence, from where does it come, and how can it be transformed? This interactive talk considers these questions in the light of Michael’s therapeutic use of masks with young adults with complex needs and violent offenders in a therapeutic community prison. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner’s teachings, and particularly his insights into the workings of the human double, Michael seeks to shine a light into the darkest places of the human soul and bring the possibility of transformation

Michael Chase has been developing the application of mask in theatre, education and therapy for thirty-five years. He is presently working as a Psychodrama Psychotherapist in a democratic therapeutic prison, HMP Grendon. Michael is writing a series of books for Hawthorn Press; the first, MASK, on the theme of the four temperaments, was published in May 2017. www.mikechasemasks.com
