Psychodrama: Holistic healing for a troubled planet

Sounds lofty, but it’s true. Literally translated, psychodrama means a drama of the soul. Having witnessed and/or facilitated several hundred psychodramas, I can tell you the soul is definitely present in this work…

Created in the 1920’s by Jacob Moreno, psychodrama is part of the humanistic psychology movement with thousands of practitioners worldwide.

How does one heal from the effects of emotional, physical, spiritual and sexual abuse? Psychodrama is a group method which quickly transforms the members of the group to part of the healing process.

The structure of this program offers an incredible vehicle for bringing the benefits of psychodrama…o those who may need it most.

We work with referring therapists, men have an intensely supportive and transformative experience, and the opportunity to continue their work in a facilitated support group where they learn body-centered psychodrama and other group exercises.

More than an intense experience that is quickly forgotten, this can be an opportunity to transform a man and all his relationships.

    Hi, Bill,

    I am the training director of the Psychodrama Training Institute of Chicago and a TEP, the highest level of our profession. I hold an MA and was recently awarded Fellow of the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama.

    I invite you to come and drop in to one of our sessions held on Tuesday evenings at the Piccolo Theatre in Evanston, on the second floor at the Pufferbelly cafe.

    Altho you are not in our American Board of Examiners directory, I think that using Action Techniques certainly aids in the therapy.
    How about you coming to one of our sessions and learning more.

    Hello, Bill:

    I just learned of your web site and your use of psychodrama in your work. I’m writing to get acquainted let you know of another psychodrama resource in the Midwest — the Midwest Training Series at Lake House Health & Learning Center in Racine, Wis.

    The series is designed for professionals new to psychodrama, as well as those who have used the method for years and are seeking updated skills and/or want a safe place to address personal work and get CE and psychodrama credits. I’ve been pleased to welcome professionals and advanced students from Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and Arizona.

    As you have a specialty in trauma, you may wish to know about Kate Hudgins’ Therapeutic Spiral Model, which combines psychodrama and socimetry with current brain research with several action structures especially designed for safety. I’ve worked closely with her for a number of years and have been very impressed with her model, which I have integrated into my own psychotherapy, teaching and supervision.

    You may also wish to know that the Midwest Chapter of the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama is revitalizing; see http://www.midwestpsychodrama.org for more information.
