International Association of Group Psychotherapy Conference
From Freud to Neurobiology: Two Psychodrama Models to Treat PTSD
Presented by Kate Hudgins, Ph.D, TEP and Carolina Becerril Maillefert, MD.
The Congress is planned at a time when we hear almost daily about a suicide attack or an act of violence somewhere around the world. Wars and warlike situations are ongoing and recurrent. There are now more refugees than ever before. In 2015 the UN estimated 65 million displaced people in the world.
The world we grew up in – post WW II – is changing dramatically and often violently. We as group psychotherapists and group processors are being called to bring our expertise to help us all cope with these Rising Tides and to instill ‘realistic hope’.

TSM Action Healing Workshop: Examining the (Inner) Roles of the Man
Join Scott Giacomucci, Dr. Steven Durost, and a TSI Action Healing Team in this first ever Men’s TSM workshop! Together, we will increase our inner strengths, transform internalized trauma-based roles, and cultivate post-traumatic growth through sociometry, psychodrama, and the creative arts therapies. In examining our inner roles, we will discern which roles contribute to us being the best men that we can be, while also adding new roles to expand our role repertoires. This workshop is experiential in nature providing men with a safe place for personal work.
The Therapeutic Spiral Model is a clinically modified form of psychodrama developed for working safely with trauma, based on classical psychodrama, neuroscience, attachment, and experiential psychotherapy.

Dr. Kate Hudgins is a clinical psychologist and psychodramatist, internationally recognized for her innovating model for healing trauma, the Therapeutic Spiral Model (TSM).

Hosted by Choices in Action Counseling Services, Dr. Kate Hudgins, TEP presents, “Transforming the Trauma Triangle.”
The Therapeutic Spiral Model’s (TSM) “Trauma Triangle” is a unique configuration that clarifies the destructive cycle of victim, perpetrator, and abandoning authority. In distinction to Karpman’s Triangle, this last role was created by TSM to explain the subtle, yet damaging, presence of someone who was absent—not there to rescue—i.e., there was no appropriate authority.
The Trauma Triangle represents a closed circuit of energy embedded in the personality structure of those who have survived cruelty or trauma, repeating itself as life-long patterns of abuse and neglect. This training provides tools that empower transformation of self-neglect to self-care and that instill healthy problem-solving.
Participants gain a deeper understanding of the internal personality and neurobiological structure of PTSD; learn to integrate TSM’s Prescriptive Roles & Safety Structures into clinical practice and experience the power and depth of a TSM group process that is used across cultures. This workshop offers training hours for Psychodrama as well as CEUs for CCPA and can be a stand-alone or foundation course for TSI’s International Certification Program in Trauma Therapy.
