Event description

Description

New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

- Lao Tzu

In this workshop, we will explore the introductory use of experiential techniques for addressing the problems inherent in all addictions, from drugs and alcohol to gambling, pornograpy, food, etc. Participants will learn how to begin to holistically bring the mind and body into the complexity of addiction healing. Action-based scenarios will illustrate some of the universal pitfalls of addiction, and workshop leaders will demonstrate the concretization and encountering of "people, places and things" commonly seen in these chronically relapsing conditions.

This workshop is useful for therapists who work or wish to work in recovery. Additionally, this workshop is useful for anyone in recovery, or those who love others with an addiction and wish to try a new way to dialogue about the problem. Open to all with any level of psychodrama experience as this is an introductory workshop in the area of recovery. Come see why many of the best residential recovery programs include psychodrama treatment as a core part of their approach to healing.


These ongoing sessions present sociometry, psychodrama, spontaneity-creativity theory and role theory. Participants will learn and practice techniques for use in their field of interest. Attendees have the opportunity to experience and learn about the roles of group member, auxiliary ego, protagonist and director. Sessions will offer unique instruction in the application of experiential methods to a variety of life circumstances and themes. In addition, by being involved in all the roles of psychodrama, participants will benefit from deep personal growth work. Psychodramatic methodologies of role reversal, doubling, mirroring and future projection will be demonstrated and experienced. Lunch not provided.


7 training hours can be credited toward certification by the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy.
