This video depicts the use of the step-in sociometry which is an experiential group work tool adaptable for any group setting, any population, and any topic. Step-In Sociometry, sometimes called Circle of Similarities, is particularly useful as a group-as-a-whole assessment tool and is frequently used by psychodramatists, community organizers, and other group workers. Step-in Sociometry allow participants to quickly uncover shared experience, identity, or interests.

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