Event description

Description

Who hasn't felt a little shy at parties? Maybe you've felt that social awkwardness or even social anxiety at parties, networking events or even workshops! Do you worry about people judging you as "not normal" in group settings?

This is the workshop series to attend! You will not be alone, and it is guaranteed that you will leave with new insights and a boost of social confidence to take with you each week!

Please note that this is a 6 week commitment every Wednesday from 6:30-9:30pm beginning on January 15 and ending on February 19, 2020. The ticket price reflects the total for all 6 dates.

This 6 week series is designed to:

  • Boost your social confidence at parties, networking events, other workshops, giving presentations and public speaking, etc
  • Prove to you that you are not alone and that it is safe to explore new ways of approaching social events
  • Give you deeper personal insight to fears around social interaction in order to co-creatively overcome those fears
  • Clear the way and make space for personal expansion and more fulfilling relationships in your personal and professional life
  • Create space for connection and community support and possibly lifelong friendships
  • Be a really fun and productive way to spend a weeknight!

****Please note: By registering for January 15, 2020, you are committing to the 6 sessions in total for the listed ticket price of either $625 (early bird) or $700 (full price) TOTAL.*****

The group will meet weekly to discover shared issues to explore through a dynamic role play method called Sociodrama. There will never be pressure to "perform." You may decide to volunteer for a role or you may choose to witness. No matter what you choose, you will learn something new about yourself and humanity.

This group is limited to 15 people. This is not group therapy. This is 'embodied problem solving' at its finest. Anyone can participate. There is no experience necessary besides being a human.

This is a group exploration in a safe space held by Jamie Lynn McCoppin, a drama therapist with over 45 hours of Sociodrama training. Jamie created and taught an original course for University students with speech anxiety in 2013 using Sociodrama to improve confidence. Students reported a 100% success rate.

"Fun and good way to discover yourself!" -Patricia R, NY

What's the refund policy?

Due to the planning and preparation required for this unique workshop series, no refunds will be given up to 30 days before the first workshop on January 15, 2020. However, if you are not able to attend one of the sessions, you may make up that session either by attending a drop-in session after the 6-week series that will be open to the public. The date for that drop-in session is TBD.

If you cannot attend the 6 week series, your money will be transferrable to working with Jamie in her individual coaching sessions or by applying your credit to future workshops offered by Spark of Play. You may also choose to give your credit away to a friend or family member who might benefit from coaching with Jamie.
