In this experiential seminar\, Dr. Scruggs will present a myth\, utilizing a method which integrates storytelling and drumming as a means of inviting an internal exploration of both archetypal and personal material in the service of developing social and emotional learning (SEL).  The exploration and use of myth in the context of psychotherapy will be discussed both as a form of containment and structure for unconscious material\, as well as presenting ways of dealing with emotional issues symbolically.\nLearning Objectives: \n\nDiscuss how myth increases Social & Emotional Learning (SEL) awareness;\nDescribe how myth increases capacity for self-reflection and self-discovery;\nGive an example of using myth to reframe and deepen experience.\n\nKwame Scruggs\, Ph.D. is the founder and director of Alchemy\, Inc.\, a non-profit organization in Akron\, Ohio which uses the sharing and analysis of myth to transform the lives of urban youth. He holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in Mythological Studies with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. He speaks nationally and internationally on using myth to engage youth\, create community\, stimulate dialogue\, and inspire life-changing moments. \n  URL: LOCATION:Zoom Meeting – Link will be emailed to participants.
