San Diego, CA
San Diego Psychodrama Training Group for Professionals

In this ongoing San Diego Psychodrama Training and Personal Growth Group – for professionals only – participants will be trained on the theory and practice of sociometry, psychodrama and group psychotherapy. In addition, group members will have the opportunity to practice these techniques and to explore how they can be applied to their current clientele, and a safe space to do their own work.

Training topics will include:

Motivating clients
Helping clients connect to self and others
Helping clients progress in treatment
Building group cohesion
Revealing and clearing transferences in group
Using psychodrama with individuals, couples, and families
Working with “resistance”
Facilitating effective conflict resolution
Having a safe space for professionals to do their own work
Most professionals who train in psychodrama do not go on to pursue certification but are keen to learn effective techniques that they can ethically practice with their clients. This group is open to therapists, counselors, interventionists, bodyworkers, treatment center front-line staff, coaches, teachers, doctors, nurses, attorneys or anyone working in the helping professional who can benefit from utilizing action methods such as sociometry and psychodrama in their work.

Those of us working in the helping professions often find it difficult to find safe spaces in which to do our own work – a place where we can find “role relief” so we don’t have to be in charge or “on”. Everywhere we go, we find our clients and our colleagues, making it nearly impossible to be fully authentic and share our needs, fears, wants, and triumphs. Moreover, working in a field where sometimes our desire to help our clients/patients can trump our own self-care can put anyone at risk for burn out. Therefore, this group can also be utilized as a safe place to explore personal work, including issues of compassion fatigue, and offer opportunities to boost our own wellness and support each other in putting our masks on first.

When training in psychodrama, students direct each other in personal growth psychodramas, allowing for healing and transformation for everyone. Great care is taken to build strong safety, and a commitment to confidentiality is made each time the group meets. Group members have found the group invaluable in pursuing both their personal and professional work and in having an ongoing community of like-minded practitioners with whom they can continue to walk the path of healing and recovery.

Group members must make a 3-weekend commitment (including financially) to start. Since the dates are available in advance, the expectation is that group members will attend. If there is a cause for absence (full or partial weekend), refunds will not be issued. Since we meet quarterly, planning your closure is important. It is required that you announce you’re leaving in one group, and return for closure in the next group.

Retrieving the Treasure – Returning to Serve, Heal, and Transform the Wasteland

Our 2018 series, which has used myth and the Journey of the Heroine/Hero as a model for healing and transforming ourselves and our world, culminates in this final three-day workshop, which focuses on the Return of the Heroine/Hero.

During phase three, we again draw upon action methods and expressive arts, including the Sociometric Wheel, to help us explore:
• How the Heroine/Hero, who heard the Call and travelled the Journey to retrieve the Treasure, must Return home with those transformational gifts;
• How Global Citizens and Social Artists can nurture community, age consciously, share resources, and actively support the empowerment of all beings;
• The power of joining with kindred spirits in a compassionate community of support, inspiration, encouragement, and celebration; and
• A ‘winter’ of self-care needed to ponder and integrate transformational experience.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
• Identify and reflect upon the gifts they’ve received on the Journey – their Treasure;
• Interact compassionately with others in understanding how they might individually and collectively explore what it means to be Global Citizens and Social Artists;
• Access roles that can deepen their understanding of and experience with action methods and their use; and
• Reflect on how their learning might be incorporated personally and/or applied professionally after the workshop.

Though helpful, it is not necessary to have attended the previous two events. Indeed, as multifaceted beings, in one area of our life, we may be hearing a Call; in another, we may be experiencing the Journey; and in a further area, may be striving to integrate and apply new learning – the Return. The focus of this workshop is on the Return, but the overall heroine/hero’s journey remains the context and will be incorporated into the workshop.

Time: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day
ABE Hours: 18
