Training Overview Description

The emphasis of this training will be working with the fruitless striving for constant perfection and the ease in which perceived failure can lead to addictive behaviors. Topics such as understanding addiction as an effort to fill the insatiable hole will be explored in depth. Discussion and practice of all interventions being supported by a therapeutic rational will help detail the responsible use of action methods. The work of the group, with the direction of Kaya and Georgia, is to provide a safe space for the celebration of all human emotions from deep sadness to ecstatic joy.

Event-specific Details

This workshop will offer the exploration of a multitude of experiential techniques based on the theory and techniques of group psychotherapy, psychodrama, psychomotor, and sociometry. Sociometry maps the treads of human connections with psychodrama and psychomotor place issues of all kinds on the stage, making them explicit and concrete through dramatic action.
