In the last couple of years (2011- ) I have been working on developing this system, and it is still evolving in it’s own way. Every interaction with dance, movement, art and therapy have been influencing (and is influencing) this work. The artist within training organised by IKTE also had an impact on this work. In this description I am trying to grasp what aspects of the training was influential on my work. I also find this a difficult task, as the approach I am using is very similar. (There are many differences, however this document is focusing on the follow up project, which does not reflect on these differences.) I am going to outline one of my workshops as a follow up project that occurred after the training. This workshop was held in 2015 September the 10th at the conference of the Hungarian Psychology Association, in the frame of “Summer University”. (Magyar Pszichológiai Társaság: Nyári Egyetem) Out of hereby undescribed reasons my follow up project was held and written much later than the deadline. I would like to express my apologise for this delay. I hope this paper is still relevant within these circumstances.
