Training & Workshops
Trainings & workshops are both designed to be educational and are attended by students and professionals with various educational and professional backgrounds ranging from beginner to advanced skill levels. To be a board Certified Practitioner (CP) in psychodrama one must be a Masters level licensed mental health professional. Therefore, material presented in training and workshops build upon techniques, knowledge and skills learned in collegiate level courses. Participants of trainings and workshops are attended by students or practitioners of Social Work, Counseling, Clinical Psychology, Mental Health Counseling, Pastoral Counseling, Expressive Arts Therapies, Art Therapy, Dance/ Movement Therapy, Drama Therapy, or Music Therapy.
It's also good to know how trainings & workshops differ. Workshops range from a few hours to a full day and are designed for those seeking either an introduction or a refresher. Training, on the other hand, is akin to a college course. Each training session builds upon the other allowing for a greater depth of knowledge and skills practice than a one-time workshop could provide. Training requires more of a significant time commitment. Therefore, beginner students and professionals are encouraged to attend a workshop before starting a training group.
