Addicts/alcoholics in early recovery are known for their cognitive deficits
and often experience learning difficulties.
Psychodrama works around those difficulties with experiential group
activities and role plays. This training for
addiction counselors goes to the heart of early recovery by exploring
the client’s willingness to engage in recovery
and the complex relationship the client has with her/his addictive behavior.
Willingness is the one absolute
essential requirement for addiction treatment to actually work. We will
also explore the inevitable occurrence of
relapse; or at a minimum the temptation for relapse. Participants will
learn psychodramatic structures that enact
the stages of relapse and the recovery actions every addict must use
to stay sober.
In this training addiction
counselors will experience and learn how to use action methods of
psychodrama and sociodrama to help the addict/alcoholic:
