Brief description up to 75 words

This workshop presents trauma-informed experiential group tools useful in any social work group setting including clinical work, teaching, supervision, and community work. These action-based tools emphasize mutual aid dynamics, experiential teaching, neurobiology, and relationships. The unique capacity for experiential activities to facilitate connection will be demonstrated through sociometric and psychodramatic processes. Implementation of these activities will be demonstrated for online groups with emphasis on their utility in engaging clients, students, and colleagues.
