Sociometrics and Psychodrama as Expressive Arts Therapies with Tian Dayton

Course Description

Psychodrama and Sociometry are considered to be an expressive arts therapy. Sociometrics are embodied, research based experiential processes that are psycho-educational, and can be adapted to incorporate art imagery into the experiential processes. Created by Dr. Dayton to fit easily into treatment, out-patient programs, clinics and one to one settings, sociometrics help to take the guess work out of incorporating psychodrama and sociometry into treatment. In this experiential workshop we’ll use lecture and film clips to demonstrate the embodied process of both role play and group processes that engage and bond participants. We’ll see how Floor Checks incorporate research-based education that literally pulls dry lecture material off of chalkboards and turns it into spontaneous and alive case studies that both teach and heal. And we’ll learn how to use The Trauma Timeline to trace and work with developmental trauma.
