Presentations & Workshops

Sociometrics and Psychodrama as Expressive Arts Therapies

The research in neuropsychology has officially ended the era of talking heads and brought the body into the therapeutic room as a full and necessary part of the healing equation. Psychodrama, the first form of embodied therapy and sociometry, an early theory of group dynamics, are two of the first forms of therapy that allowed the body as well as the mind to have a voice and participate in the healing milieu.

Sociometrics are a user friendly way to introduce experiential work that engage and bond groups. They naturally activate the social engagement system in service of healing, and they incorporate the research that needs to be taught in recovering from PTSD into a lively format that gets people on their feet and sharing. Sociometrics are processes that are easy to learn, empower clients to become stakeholders in their own recovery and build the skills of emotional literacy and resilience.

Sociometrics warm clients up to focused role plays that are contained and easy to incorporate. We’ll explore a focused use of psychodrama that helps clients to move from a state of dysregulation to self and co-regulation. In combination sociometrics and role play offer an approach to healing relational trauma, restoring spontaneity and building resilience.
