Embodied, Experiential Processes for Healing Trauma and Addiction
Designed to fit easily into the existing programming of an addiction treatment center or group therapy, this practice also incorporates the most up-to-date research on trauma, grief and related issues.
Sociometrics is a therapeutic role-playing practice built upon the foundation of Psychodrama and Sociometry, the pioneering group therapy concepts developed by fin-de-siècle Viennese psychiatrist Jacob Levy Moreno. Psychodrama and Sociometry have been organically embraced in the addiction field as a method of treating this kind of relational trauma.
Role-play in a therapeutic environment allows a full range of mind-body emotions and physical motions to be part of the treatment process. Words, rather than being used in some hapless attempt to describe an experience one can barely remember, can come bursting forward into the here and now, toward the right person at the right place at the right time.
