Psychodrama is usually thought of as a group method but its applications to individual therapy and counseling are many and profound. “Talking about” what happened is very different than bringing an issue into the present and engaging the whole person in the moment . Participants in this workshop will learn and practice a variety of action techniques including:

The Social Atom as a Diagnostic Tool

Empty chair work

Concretization and Maximization

Role Playing


These psychodramatic skills enliven your therapy sessions and give you useful tools to help your clients uncover and express feelings in a safe way, heal old wounds and develop more satisfying roles in their lives.

Students at all levels of experience are welcomed. Overnight accommodations are available.

$135 if registration and fee are postmarked by April 30, $160 after
