Psychodrama Training
Sue McMunn, Registrar
926 Fair Haven Court
Naples, FL 34104
Weekend or Weeklong

When major challenges arise in our lives, it becomes essential to meet them with dignity, acceptance and humor and marshal trust in our own resilience. We must gain clarity to know when and how to surrender and persevere. This training will demonstrate how to assist clients in removing impediments and establishing a deep and abiding connection with their true selves while creating community with loved ones in an intimate way. Psychodrama provides us with a safe setting that helps us regain and maintain focus and move ahead with enthusiasm, creativity and joy.

This workshop will offer techniques to assist clients in transforming their challenges and mobilizing their strengths. We invite you to participate in an intensive psychodrama and expressive arts training experience where you will have the opportunity to expand your own personal power while enjoying the profound support and connections of community. Simultaneously, you will increase your professional knowledge and skills in a structured and relaxing environment. Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina, north of West Palm Beach, FL was chosen for its comfortable meeting space, and oceanfront recreational facilities.

Preconference Workshop:

Free Introductory Workshop: Dare to Use the Empty Chair:

An Invitation to Explore Psychodrama:

The empty chair is a powerful way to explore relationships of all sorts: with others (living or deceased), with parts of self or with a role (e.g., the addict). It is ideal for rehearsing future situations: a job interview, visiting family members, setting boundaries, making amends, etc. For these reasons, it can be a potent tool in the setting of addiction treatment. But it's important to use it wisely. This three-hour, free workshop is intended especially for newcomers to psychodrama.

Date & Time: Sunday, July 15, 2018*; 2-5 p.m.

Location: Hutchinson Island Marriott, Stuart, FL
Trainers: Uneeda Brewer, MSW, CEG, PAT
Michael Gross, PhD, CADC-CAS, PAT
Steve Kopp, MS, CAS, TEP
