Dr. Chiriac Gina, Cojocaru Constantin
Workshop Duration: 1hr 30min
The workshop aims to highlight the historical drug consumption in the world, with an emphasis on documentary evidence of indications of geographical space consumption of these substances in our country.
In parallel with this aspect, there will be mapped more specific terms, the origin of which is related to the drug consumption, taken up from the vocabulary and from the collective consciousness of our country and used in everyday communication, without many of the users knowing their original meaning, but also the influences of the oriental civilizations, especially the Arab and Turkish, regarding the inland habits of the consumption of psychotropic substances.
Also, the database of terms will be explored and developed by the dependent patient regarding the addictive consumption, which has the natural tendency to use in the relation with the psychotherapist, in order to optimize communication.
There will be taken into account both the common terms (dose, overdose, withdrawal, tolerance, abstinence etc.) and those of jargon (powder, weed , joint , snow , crack , honey, morphism , emsel , ball , flash , kick, speed -ball, high , speed , blotter , blotter acid , windows / panes , micropoints , happy- faces , mime – trips / comic -trips , purple haze , sunshine explosion , keta , vitamin k , ketavet , ozone , angel dust , rocket fuel , embalming fluid , etc.).
Sailing with the client through the icebergs among their own specific fears of the inner child, sometimes conducting the therapy with the boldness of the professional adult, like a ship captain, the psychotherapist stays open to the road leading to the port where the therapeutic objective gets achieved. In this context, the therapeutic relation becomes a ship of safety.
The last part will be dedicated to identifying a potential consumer based on verbal, nonverbal and para -communication (content of verbal communication, speed / pace of speech, intonation, physical and behavioral aspects)
