Clients often arrive in our offices in a state of high anxiety, or are ambivalent and therefore, reluctant to engage in the process.  By utilizing action methods, we can more quickly help them lower their anxiety, and build a sense of safety, which allows them to better engage in the process, and keep coming back.

This training weekend is designed to educate participants on the use of Sociometry to engage clients and create an environment that allows them to feel safe and connected enough to take more risks, and move forward on their path of healing. Through simple sociometric exercises, you will learn how to efficiently and effectively lower anxiety and raise spontaneity with your clients, which will propel them forward to a deeper sense vulnerability.

We will specifically look at the timing of clinical interventions, and participants will learn techniques to help address issues of isolation, cliques, transferences, and stuck energy in the group, family or in the self.  Sociometric explorations such as spectrograms, locograms, barometers, action sociograms, social atoms, and the Diamond of Opposites will be explored, and participants will leave the workshop with a strong set of skills to address interpersonal dynamics that they can bring directly back to their work with clients.

No prior sociometry or psychodrama experience required to attend.
