DBT & Psychodrama Skills for Affect Management: Facilitating Wise Mind

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) asks us to consider three states of mind: Emotional, Rational and Wise. Awareness of these different states are meant to guide people toward healthy choices and right action. Psychodrama identifies the roles of the Expressive, the Supportive, and the Reflective Double, which work together to help develop new and adequate responses to situations. This parallel found between DBT and Psychodrama makes their synthesis all the more powerful. In this highly participatory workshop, we will address how psychodrama can be used to concretize the three states of mind, and in particular, how to help clients discover and develop their Wise mind. Participants will work in pairs for individual session enactments, and will also have the chance to participate in a large group psychodrama demonstration. No previous psychodrama experience is necessary.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
