Introduction to bibliodrama:
Engaging collective stories to foster connection & empathy
Sunday, June 27, 2021 4 - 7 PM EST
Collective stories provide a container through which we can explore archetypal themes in ways that help form connections and invite expanded awareness and perspective. In this workshop, participants will learn about ways to help groups of people explore stories from a variety of cultures, sacred traditions, mythology, fairytales and folklore. Active exploration of stories will be demonstrated and practiced, drawing on techniques from bibliodrama, drama therapy and music therapy.
Psychodramatic role development:
Creating space for who you want to be
Saturday, July 17, 2021 9 AM- 12:30 PM EST
In this workshop we will explore different aspects of Jacob L Moreno’s role theory. Moreno stated that we are a composite of the roles that we play. He believed that when developmental needs are not adequately met in the early days, what was missed is not lost. Important developmental needs can be reclaimed in psychodrama using the interventions that Moreno created to replicate the stages of early role development In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to reflect on the roles that make up who you are, to consider roles that you would like to shift, reduce, expand or transform.
