The present economic crisis sees women as one of the categories most
excluded from the labor market. This exclusion, involving marginalization from
relational opportunities and loss of the emancipation condition, which used to
create social visibility, can be experienced as personal violence. The consequence
may result in bio-psycho-relational discomfort. In order to generate new resources,
a process of group co-construction will lead to give visibility to one’s own
potentials and develop the ability to be flexible, encouraging empowerment.
The workshop will create an experiential moment which makes reference to a
project directed to women in search of work. Actions will be aimed, in a group
context, at reorganizing the perceptive social atom through sociometric activities,
by mapping abilities, skills, desires, life mission.
