Childwork/Childplay: Action Methods with Children
Psychodrama, sociodrama, creative dramatics and playback can facilitate the healing of wounded children. The focus of this workshop will be on group work with children, ages five through twelve, who are victims of abandonment, abuse, trauma and domestic violence. This workshop offers specific action structures that create the necessary safe space that allows children to tell their stories, express strong feeling and find new roles.
Participants will experience the use the psychodramatic and sociodramatic empty chair, the use of multiple doubles, structures such an inner and outer circle and the use of fantasy figures to create safety and encourage expression.
