Using Action to Effect Change
April 28—30, 2016 at Onsite Workshops, Cumberland Furnace, TN
Addicted family systems are locked into unhealthy roles and behaviors. When conducting an intervention, it is crucial to utilize sociometry to lower anxiety, and warm up the family to change. In this didactic and experiential “learning lab” workshop, we will demonstrate the benefits of treating the entire family system, and how sociometry and psychodrama can motivate the family towards recovery.
Bill Maher, Interventionist will be a presenter at Action Intervention Training—Using Action to Effect Change. Advanced strategies, tools and techniques utilizing a combination of intervention modalities, sociometry and psychodrama techniques that can be applied to formal interventions as well as any facet of addiction/mental health services for clients and families.
