WOMEN OF TRACHIS BY SOPHOCLES: A DRAMATIC READING


SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2020
1 – 5:30 PM
FACULTY: PAUL WOODRUFF, PHD; KAREN NAIFEH, PHD; SAM NAIFEH, MD 
4 Possible Continuing Education Credits Approved for MD, PHD, PsyD, MFT, LCSW, LPCC, LEP & RN
TUITION: $100 (INCLUDES CEUs)
Cultural attitudes of men and women toward women can create an environment for destructive, even lethal, self-fulfilling prophecies, as demonstrated in the text of this play. 
Program participants will perform a dramatic reading of Women of Trachis by Sophocles eliciting and exploring deep emotional chords expressing vulnerability at the core of relationships. Psychological issues in the context of cultural attitudes toward women presented in the play show striking relevance to case examples of dysfunctional relationships today. Specific study and analysis of adverse impacts upon women in the cultures of states at war, insufficiently perceived until recently.  This presentation addresses not only the impacts on the families but also the more enduring impact on cultural attitudes manifested in the position of women in culture. Overall attitudes toward women that persist as a significant factor in social, economic, and political struggles today derive in part, from the long history of the treatment of women in cultures worldwide. This program analyzes less obvious but powerfully destructive unconscious cultural attitudes utilizing in-depth presentation of the issue through the ancient Greek play by Sophocles: Women of Trachis. This program and this play focus upon the human dimension of war’s impacts on women and children of those waging war.
