This workshop presents an overview of strengths-based psychodrama with an emphasis on the importance of strengths-based work in the first phase of trauma therapy. Content will be presented experientially drawing from sociometry, neurobiology, social work’s strength-based tradition, and positive psychology. Morenian philosophy will be introduced through strengths-based and trauma-informed lenses. This workshop is designed to teach practical skills for practitioners new to psychodrama or experienced psychodramatists. Psychodramas will be facilitated in both a group format and individual settings with practice opportunities for participants.

*Please note that this is workshop will include both didactic and experiential learning components. The experiential learning structures include demonstrations of psychodrama and other experiential processes which often include (optional) personal disclosures from participants. While personal growth is often a byproduct of experiential learning in psychodrama, the primary purpose of this workshop is training. If you are seeking a workshop for personal growth, or seeking a professional training event that is entirely didactic (lecture/powerpoint), this is probably not the best workshop for you.

*Please note that all participants will be required to wear a mask while in the building due to the rising covid-19 cases in Delaware County and the Philadelphia area. Covid policies are subject to change based on changes in covid-19 cases leading up to the date of the event.
