Yes, there are rules to role play! And techniques, too! Make your role plays (and other action structures in other settings) rock with the technique of doubling, which is considered a key intervention in supporting developmental change, empathy for self and more.

Doubling, along with other psychodramatic techniques, promises to enable people to give issues more serious or deeper consideration, particularly in settings where self-disclosure and finding one’s voice are challenging.

In this interactive training Karen Carnabucci will demonstrate the use of doubling and other role play techniques that enlivens the therapeutic setting, increases insight,  permits and assists self-disclosure, and deepens a person’s experience of self and the issue. There will be ample opportunities to practice and ask questions about the use of this role play technique. You will learn:

  • The application of role theory to safe role play in settings of mental health, chemical dependency treatment, coaching and education.
  • The uses of the psychodramatic techniques of doubling, role reversal, mirroring and others.
  • Assessing your client for interventions with the psychodramatic role play techniques.
  • How to explain and warm up your client to role play.
  • How to evaluate the client’s story for role play possibilities.
  • Adaptions for group and 1-1 settings.
  • The judicious use of props to set scenes and make the issue come alive.

This training is designed for mental health professionals and professional helpers, including social workers, marriage and family therapists, licensed counselors, addictions counselors, physicians, nurses, creative arts therapists, massage therapists and bodyworkers, alternative health practitioners, life coaches, educators, clergy, clinical supervisors, administrators, youth leaders, group leaders, graduate students and others interested in experiential psychotherapy and experiential learning.
