MARI- (Mandala Assessment Research Instrument)
Time & Location
About the Event
MARI is a comprehensive psychological tool based on colors and symbols. Unlike other traditional assessments, MARI accesses all four aspects of consciousness – both conscious and unconscious. Grounded in wholeness and a transpersonal, Jungian perspective, MARI is a tool that reflects the positive psychology perspective, and accesses “other than conscious contents.”
MARI is a non-verbal and non-threatening assessment that works because there is a remarkable connection between the symbols and colors that one chooses and what is going on in the person’s life. MARI passes beneath the radar of consciousness to reveal the inner truth of the individual as it really is –not the ego, but the Self. Using archetypal symbols and developmental stages of life, it literally reveals an accurate visual ‘picture’ of one’s psyche. MARI is also used as a highly effective therapeutic tool. Because the subject ‘sees’ where they are, change can occur much more quickly. The subject provides their own intuitive guidance based on their own urge toward wholeness.
While the course is of primary interest to mental health professionals, the material is relevant to other disciplines as well. “MARI Creative Resources Center has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6335. MARI Creative Resources Center is solely responsible for all aspects of the program.” This course is far more than learning about an excellent tool. It is an informative, interesting and deeply personal experience!
