Shades of Gray: Ethics in Action!

Different traditions offer varying opinions on therapist self-disclosure.  How can you determine whether a disclosure is appropriate in context, and adheres to the ethical treatment of a given client?  This experiential workshop will use the technique of “future projection” to explore real-life, garden-variety self-disclosures that therapists make to clients.  In a lab-like setting, participants will have the opportunity to enact and discuss the ramifications of self-disclosure.  In slowing down the process through action, “choice points” can be assessed, and different possibilities can be considered without negative consequences.  Discussion and processing will round out the experiential focus as peers benefit from each other’s wisdom and perspectives.

An Introduction to Psychodrama: It’s Not Just Role-playing

The founder of psychodrama, JL Moreno, was a psychiatrist who was trained by Freud. Moreno’s path took a different turn, reportedly telling his teacher, “You analyze their dreams. I try to give them the courage to dream again.” Moreno went on to coin the term “group psychotherapy,” and developed psychodrama as a therapeutic vehicle to define problems, explore new roles, and practice ways to better face what life throws our way. Basic psychodrama action techniques can be learned and used in group and individual therapy, as well as education and business! This interactive workshop will introduce you to psychodrama and give you a sampling of action techniques that can be used in groups and individual practice. (Trainer: Linda Bianchi, LICSW, LCSW, TEP, TAKE ACTION)
