Sociometry:  Learning Techniques to Examine, Build and Repair Connections

Saturday, June 25, 2022                                                        10 am - 1 pm EDT

520 8th Avenue (between 36th and 37th Streets), Manhattan

Sociometry is the exploration and measurement of social relationships within individuals, groups and society. In his pioneering work in refugee camps, prisons and schools, J.L. Moreno, the founder of Psychodrama and Sociodrama, developed sociometric tools to help people feel a greater sense of connection, belonging and well-being.  Experiences of division, exclusion, oppression and isolation continue to be pervasive in our world today.  In this workshop we will explore a variety of sociometric techniques to build safe spaces where everyone is valued and included.

Psychodrama meets CBT: 

Incorporating Action Methods Within a Cognitive Behavioral Approach

Sunday, July 17, 2022                                                                              4 pm - 7 pm EDT



Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an approach that focuses on helping people become more aware of how thoughts and beliefs influence feelings and behavior.   We will explore ways that psychodramatic techniques and role play can support people in becoming more aware of the stories they tell themselves, concretize beliefs and biases that can then be seen and examined, and develop and test out alternative perceptions and ways of being.


Professionals: $60 for each workshop or $110 for both             

Full-time students and 2022 graduates: $45 or $80 for both
