In this webinar, we will explore different woman figures of African mythology and tales and explain their impact on representations of womanhood and gender differences. The tale expresses and translates in an encrypted language, terrors inherent in psychic life, from the most archaic to the most obvious, from the most diffuse to the most precise.
In addition, the tale has a particular advantage for the clinical practitioner: it touches on topics known to all or at least to most of the participants, presenting explicitly, implicit content and nuancing situations by allowing a role play that can alleviate the effect of stigma and guilt.
During the second part of this webinar, we will explore the application of oral tradition knowledge to clinical practice through a projective method. After a brief introduction of the methodology used to develop this tool, we will present and analyze 2 clinical cases.
