Facilitating Shame Reduction with Action Methods for Intensive Group Therapy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 704

The process of group therapy can be deepened through the use of psychodrama that is based on personality and group dynamics. In this 3-hour workshop, participants will be a part of an experiential group process whereby action methods will be used to facilitate emotional healing and understanding, with a focus on shame reduction. The role of the therapist will explored along with the relational dynamics within the group setting. Through this process, participants will experience the “working through” of hurt, pain, and shame, and cultivate new behaviors that can aid their therapeutic practice.

NOTE: Attendees are strongly recommended to be psychologically prepared for personal exploration and discovery in this workshop.

Eligible for 3.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
