The University of Applied Sciences Hildesheim / Holzminden / Göttingen invites you to its symposium "The art of becoming healed ... being healed" from September 14th to 16th, 2001 in Hildesheim. The symposium is intended to provide an insight into the border area between theater and therapy, between medicine and psychology, where work and research are particularly intense in the department of social education at the university.

The department of social pedagogy at the University of Applied Sciences Hildesheim / Holzminden / Göttingen invites you to a very special symposium from September 14th to 16th, 2001: Under the title "The art of being healed ... being healed" is about procedures and experiences in Theater therapy, meditative art and breathing therapy and in Hildesheim health training. The symposium is intended to offer an insight into the border area between theater and therapy, between medicine and psychology - a border area on which particularly intensive work and research is being carried out in Hildesheim.

Art and theater are defining elements of the social pedagogy department. Advice and health issues play an important role in research and teaching. In this environment, new forms of theater therapy, meditative art and breathing therapy and Hildesheim health training have emerged and have been further developed and evaluated in numerous works. These procedures will be presented at the symposium, which is organized in cooperation with the German Society for Psycho-Allergology and the Society for Theater Therapy as a congress on Hildesheim health training and is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Science and Culture.

The core of the three-day symposium is the participants' own experiences in workshops. Four lectures set the framework:
Prof. Dr. Peter Petersen from the Hannover Medical School (MHH) speaks about the relationship between art and the currently prevailing "mechanistic" medicine and its necessary further development. Prof. Dr. Gerhart Unterberger. With the development of psychoneuroimmunology, it is becoming increasingly clear how important psychological and emotional influences are, especially in chronic illnesses and healing processes. Mental health counseling uses this knowledge with the help of hypnotherapeutic methods, which are suitable for lifting emotional inhibitions of immune reactions, changing unfavorably learned immune reactions and specifically promoting healing processes. Unterberger will clarify (also in workshops) the procedures and logic of mental health counseling and, with the help of empirical results, illustrate the fascinating possibilities that can revolutionize the treatment and prevention of many diseases.
Professor Dr. Birgit Klosterkötter-Prisor introduces the healing power of play and theater. "Under the protection of the game I show myself - in everyday life I dress up": Dramatists work with the confrontation of masked everyday behavior and authentic behavior on stage. To open spaces within oneself, to discover and open closed bags inside oneself and to let the unlived parts take shape, to become more complex and more healing, says Klosterkötter-Prisor. This is where theater and therapy meet, which will also be presented in a lecture and workshop at the symposium.

"Therapy and Art: The Psyche as a Place of Design" is the topic of a lecture and workshop by Professor Michael Schwindt. He introduces meditative art and breathing therapy, in which artistic design, the effect of which has been convincingly proven in many studies, is accorded central importance. Schwindt analyzes the healing effects of art therapy.

Around 20 speakers will enable intensive experiences in workshops over the three days, report on their research and experiences and present the "central theme" of their processes.
The symposium will be rounded off by a panel discussion with representatives of health insurance companies on the subject: "Who can afford not to pay for it?"
