Character Mapping

A comprehensive approach to character development that helps actors, writers, directors and storytellers quickly create a cohesive backstory and the multi-layered motivations for a character. Character Mapping is developed and presented by Portland psychotherapist and trainer, Mariel Pastor, M.A.

Participants explore the different aspects of the human mind, as well as key internal and external influences that shape a rich life story. The system of tools and exercises bring additional focus to the storyteller’s own psychological well-being as it is impacted by the characters created.

A dynamic curriculum introduced at Cerimon House in 2015, and returning in 2016.
