Ulster County, NY
(overnight accommodations are available)
~Space is limited...register early to avoid being closed out~
~For Advanced Students (with at least 450 hours of training) and
Certified Practitioners, PATS and TEPS~
Ten Participants. Everyone directs a full two-hour fifteen minute psychodrama
session; everyone gets to be a protagonist.
The role of
the director includes the producer, the social investigator, the group
facilitator, the analyst/guide, the conflict manger, the sociometrist
and more. This intensive will give advanced student directors the chance
to explore these many functions. Each participant get to direct a full
two-hour psychodrama group including warm up, action and sharing. Each
will have the opportunity to be the protagonist in his or her own drama.
There will be close to an hour devoted to processing each session with
an emphasis on both theory and practice.
This training offers the
chance to take a look at what you are doing that works well (and why
it works!). We will also take a look at where you get stuck in the process
of directing (and why you get stuck in that particular spot). As a group,
we look at psychodrama theory and how it can inform our choices of action
to further facilitate the drama. It gives you the chance to hone your
craft as well as a safe place to be protagonist in your own drama.
For Certified Practitioners,
PATS and TEPS; Many practitioners, having "graduated" from
their training group, no longer have the opportunity to enjoy being
part of a group, nor get the chance to be a protagonist in their own
psychodrama. This intensive will give you the opportunity to do both,
as well as to get role relief from being the one in charge, the director,
the group leader. Come enjoy being a group member, and hone your craft
all at the same time!
For Advanced Students: Many
advanced students bemoan the limited directing opportunities in their
own training groups. Their directing experience is mainly on their jobs
with group members of various functioning levels as well as varied experience
with psychodrama This intensive guarantees you a chance to direct a
group of your peers.It is expected that you will have previously directed
at least five psychodramas or have permission of trainer. The psychodrama
community is rich with diversity of background and theoretical orientation.
Because your fellow group members will have trained with a variety of
trainers, discussions will be enriched by a variety perspectives and
training backgrounds. . It also offers a great practice session for
your on-site for those of you who are getting close to certification.
Rebecca is committed to creating
a warm, relaxed and humor filled environment that encourages spontaneity
and reduces the anxiety that often accompanies directing in front of
one's peers. Her position is that everyone has to make at least twelve
mistakes or she won't have anything to talk about! (And don't forget
to ask her about the first time she directed in front of her trainer
and forgot to ask the protagonist what the issue was they were going
to work on).
Directing Intensive is limited to 10 participants with a minimum of
450 hours of training and with previous psychodrama directing experience
or by permission of trainer.
