Psychodrama Training Group for Professional Development and Personal Growth

With Sylvia Israel, MFT, RDT/BCT, TEP 

This Training Group is for people seeking to expand their knowledge of the theory and practice of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. The Training Group is a supportive, stimulating community of learners; a laboratory in which to develop spontaneity as a director, auxiliary, protagonist and group member. Participants will have input into specific areas of study and numerous opportunities for directing. 
The training integrates classical psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy with contemporary knowledge from interpersonal neurobiology. The result is a theoretically grounded, holistic model. The training also draws from somatic attachment psychotherapy, mindfulness and the Therapeutic Spiral Model of working with trauma. Theory, skills development, personal growth and professional application are emphasized.
Participants meet as a closed group over three 3-day weekends. The continuity of meeting as a closed cohort fosters an environment where group members can experiment with psychodrama in many ways according to their interests and needs. 
Please note: If there is not enough enrollment for a closed group, sessions will be opened to other participants at a higher fee. If you would like to participate but cannot meet for all three weekends, please contact Sylvia.  
Training is open to professionals and students in the fields of mental health, law, substance abuse and recovery, creative arts therapies, religion, human services, personnel management, group facilitation and education and those wanting to further their knowledge of psychodrama.
