This video depicts the use of the spectrogram which is an experiential group work tool adaptable for any group setting, any population, and any topic. Spectrograms are particularly useful as a group-as-a-whole assessment tool and are frequently used by psychodramatists, community organizers, and other group workers. Spectrograms are essentially a sliding scale with the entire group in an action-based format that allows participants to see where they fit in within the group.

Group workers are encouraged to pursue more training in experiential therapy, sociometry, and psychodrama. For upcoming trainings offered by Scott, visit
