Ideas to help when your working with individuals or groups
Psychodrama and Role-Play techniques can help you to ´liven´ up the session and also allow your clients to release their inhibitions and help you work with resistance.
Working with Individuals:
We explore psychodrama techniques that can be incorporated into your practice now. Here are 2 techniques as examples:
Empty Chair technique: This allows the client to speak to openly to the ´person´ or issue in their life.
Doubling: Gives you, the therapist, a technique to help your clients when they get ´stuck´ or with resistance.
Working with Groups:
Role-play is a valuable tool in therapy, yet it is often feared because therapists say they feel it could run out of control. At phoenix psychodrama we give you plans, structured sessions, work with case histories and explore how to use the techniques in a safe controlled way.
