Participant Information

This workshop welcomes students and professionals with various educational and professional backgrounds ranging from beginner to advanced skill level. Some advanced participants may be seeking approved hours toward psychodrama certification while intermediate or beginner participants may be seeking education for professional development and skill building purposes. The workshop provides content and training hours required for board certification in psychodrama. Board Certified Practitioner’s (C. P.) and C.P. eligible candidates must be masters level licensed mental health professionals. Therefore, the material presented in this course builds upon techniques, knowledge and skills learned in introductory collegiate level courses (i.e. human growth and development, theories of personality, abnormal behavior/psychopathology, methods of psychotherapy, and social systems). Participants at the beginning skill level will minimally have completed some collegiate level course work and demonstrate an interest and aptitude for pursuing an advanced level mental health degree (ex. Social Work, Counseling, Clinical Psychology, Mental Health Counseling, Pastoral Counseling, Expressive Arts Therapies, Art Therapy, Dance/ Movement Therapy, Drama Therapy, or Music Therapy). This psychodrama workshop uses an adult learning model, so education and learning flows from all available resources, allowing advanced and intermediate (i.e. current masters level students or recent graduates) level participants the benefit of furthering their clinical acumen via the questions and enthusiasm of beginning level participants.
