Psychodrama 101: Learn the Basics to Rock Your Role Play

Friday, May 6, 2022

10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET

Psychodrama is the basis of what we call the creative arts therapies, although it may be challenging to find a philosophy that is hardly known by the public and at the same time so firmly embedded in our culture with group therapy, support groups, social networks, role play, experiential psychotherapy and other action activities. In this four-hour online training, presented by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, you will learn: the basics of role theory and how it relates to assessing, assigning and directing role play vignettes. how to develop spontaneity and creativity with your people so they are eager and willing to participate and the basic role play techniques of doubling, role reversal and mirroring. Four CE and psychodrama credits.

About this event

With psychodrama celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, we look at the special gifts and evolution of this amazing action method as well as its many applications to psychotherapy, education, coaching, addictions counseling, law and other disciplines.

Psychodrama is the basis of what we call the creative arts therapies today, although it may be challenging to find a philosophy that is hardly known by the public and at the same time so firmly embedded in our culture with group therapy, support groups, social networks, role play, experiential psychotherapy and other action activities.

Yet, have you ever tried “role play” in your psychotherapy room, coaching space, addiction treatment center or support group – and have it fall flat? This is what happens when we’ve not studied the role theory of Dr. J.L. Moreno have not learned the steps that contribute to a fully present director, as the facilitator is called, and readiness for taking and playing roles.

In this three-hour online training, presented by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, you will learn:

• A brief history of psychodrama, the action method developed by Dr. J.L. Moreno and his wife Zerka T. Moreno.

• Role theory and how it relates to assessing, assigning and directing role play vignettes.

• How to develop spontaneity and creativity with your people so they are eager and willing to participate.

• How creativity and spontaneity work with the neurobiology of the brain and body to create deep changes within a human.

• The evolution of action according to the Hollander Curve of psychodrama, which can be applied to individual and group sessions.

• The basic role play techniques of doubling, role reversal and mirroring.

Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, and Linda Ciotola, M.Ed., TEP, are co-authors of Healing Eating Disorders with Psychodrama and Other Action Methods: Beyond the Silence and the Fury.
