Psychodrama in Alaska!
We are pleased to announce our annual May, five-day residential training workshop, to be held in the unique and beautiful straw bale house. which overlooks the bay in Homer, AK. During the process of the workshop we will work to create a safe “village of choice”, in which we will teach powerful, evidence- based psychotherapeutic techniques. This workshop will offer the exploration of a multitude of experiential techniques, based on the theory and techniques of psychodrama, psychomotor therapy, and sociometry. Sociometry maps the threads of human connections, while psychodrama and psychomotor therapy place issues of all kinds on the stage, making them explicit and concrete through dramatic action. In the workshop, we will explore ethical issues through action, helping participants become aware of their own beliefs and concerns about ethical practice. We will discuss the therapeutic rationale of the techniques utilized. The experiential techniques we use can be utilized in individual, group and family therapy. The work of the group, with the direction of Kaya and Georgia, is to provide a safe space for the celebration of all human emotions, from deep sadness to ecstatic joy. Through the workshop process, participants have the opportunity of increasing self-compassion and self-awareness, allowing for increased compassion for others. We are pleased to offer this training to trainees working toward certification in psychodrama, professionals who wish to augment their present skills, and couples who wish to experience the process together.
