The Heart and Soul of Psychotherapy: A transpersonal approach through psychodrama, drama therapy and transformational theatre.
The theme is in the title of this international conference:
Empowering Practice: Integrating psychodrama, Sociodrama and other modalities
Saphira Linden’s workshop and new book provide an exciting example of the process of integration in action. She writes:
There are two things I would like to share on your conference blog.
One is the publication of our new book which expect to be available at the conference): THE HEART AND SOUL OF PSYCHOTHERAPY: A Transpersonal Approach Through Theater Arts—-Drama Therapy, Psychodrama, Transformational Theater, Saphira Linden. ED, Trafford Publishing, 2013. There are four forewords, Zerka Moreno, the co-founder of Psychodrama, David Read Johnson, co-founder of Drama Therapy, Ellen Burstyn, Award winning American Actress, Pir Zia Inayat Khan, head of The Sufi Order International, a school of meditation. There are 39 contributing authors, who are drama therapists & psychodramatists and each of them applies our 12 transpersonal principles to a different population. We are so pleased that this book presents so many diverse populations and how our approach has served all of them. We understand that there is no other book on the market that demonstrates concretely how to work with the embodied arts and meditation (different kinds) for so many different populations and includes case examples in every chapter.
The 2nd thing is that we will be presenting a 10 day program in June, in Boston, with many guest teachers as well as with the Co-Directors of our training program, Phillip Speiser, Saphira Linden. They will be joined by David Read Johnson, one of the founders of Drama Therapy and Developmental Transformations, Dr. Daniel Weiner, the founder of Rehearsals for Growth, Iris Grant, visual artist par excellence, who will be assisting students create props for their transformational theater pieces, Christopher Carboni, Musician, Drama Therapist, Sound Healer, Yoga Instructor.
