Introduction to Psychodramatic
with Susan Aaron
November 1-3, 2013
Boughton Place, Highland, NY
Aaron, B.A., R.M.T.
Originator and Trainer
workshop is designed to meet the needs of participants with varying
degrees of experience in dealing with cathartic release. Participants
will be exposed to a range of skills, from emotional first aid to deep
cathartic release facilitation. Great attention is paid to the creation
of a safe group. The intersecting dimensions of race, ethnicity and
gender are explored in this context. There will be both didactic presentations
and experiential learning. Experienced facilitators will assist Susan
in the small-group experiential components.
The Introductory Level Workshop meets Friday through Sunday from 9:30
AM through 5 PM. It focuses on . . .
• Understanding, witnessing and experiencing the emotional release
of anger, sadness and fear.
• Providing facilitated opportunities to experience the release
of each emotion safely.
• Witnessing the full range of anger, sadness and fear, from barely
expressed to fully released.
• Learning where the body holds each of these emotions when they
• Learning and practicing guidelines for Safe Touch.
• Increasing one’s comfort level in the use of Safe Touch.
• Experiencing the integration of emotional release and bodywork
within the structure of a psychodrama.
• Learning and practicing the 6 aspects of closure theory.
Deep personal healing does occur because it’s an experiential
workshop but it is not a therapy group. Members will need significant
support at various times during and after the workshop to complete and
integrate what was begun in the workshops.
