Mario Cossa, RDT/MT, TEP, CAWT: I am proud to be listed among this group of outstanding healers and trainers. I have started calling myself a TSM Psychodramatist, because everything I do with psychodrama is informed by the clinical awareness I gained while becoming a Trainer for TSI and with the many years of utilizing TSM in my work.

I believe passionately in the ability of the creative and performing arts in general and expressive therapies specifically to heal, to expand consciousness, and to transform lives. I have worked with teens and those who serve them around the globe. Work with adolescents holds a primary focus for me. My latest endeavor, Motivational Arts Unlimited, is currently bringing action methods to youth and youth leaders in Indonesia and other regions of Asia. I am currently collaborating on a project to bring action methods for values education to junior and senior high school students across Bali.

Optional Monday 10-5pm:  Supervision and Directing Practice with Psychodrama and Trauma. $50 extra if you attend entire weekend. $125 for the one day event.

DISCOVERING NEW WORLDS: Transformational Advances in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy @ Manchester Downtown Hotel
May 2 – May 5 all-day

May 2 – 5  “DISCOVERING NEW WORLDS: Transformational Advances in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy” 77th ASGPP Annual Conference. Manchester Downtown Hotel, Manchester, NH. Contact: www.asgpp.org

On May 2nd, Dr. Kate Hudgins & Dr. Steven Durost will be co-presenting:

The Awakening Godhead Within: Morenian Theory with Therapeutic Spiral Model Psychodrama
One of the most beautiful concepts of the Therapeutic Spiral Model of Psychodrama is the understanding of the sleeping/awakening child. When trauma happens, one part of the being becomes the victim child who takes the pain and the other part of the being goes to sleep, does not experience the abuse and holds the treasured qualities of the child’s spirit. When healing comes, the sleeping child awakens and emerges through the help of the roles of good enough parent/good enough partner/good enough god. The awakening child releases all the wonderful qualities it has been protecting and those qualities become integrated into the transforming adult.

Zerka Moreno says when the first and the second universe meet they ignite the autonomous healing center and change happens. In Therapeutic Spiral Model Psychodrama, the autonomous healing center is ignited at the moment the victim child feels safe. It is then the sleeping child awakens. In the moment when the protagonist engages his/her strengths, manages his/her defenses and walks to his/her trauma without falling into the trauma, then the protagonist can rescue the victim child. At that moment, with the help of the group and the creation of the sacred space of healing found in the six safety structures, the first and the second universe merge and healing happens. The victim child feels safe, the sleeping child awakens and the protagonist moves towards transformation.

Ignite your autonomous healing center through the six safety structures of the Therapeutic Spiral Model of Psychodrama and explore the sleeping/awakening Godhead child through art project, psychodrama/soicodrama and role reversal. This workshop is a merger of theory, experiential learning, psychodramatic experience, groupwork and sacred creation all aimed at increasing spontaneity, joy and healing.

Transforming the Trauma Triangle @ Zagreb, Croatia
Jun 20 – Jun 23 all-day
Transforming the Trauma Triangle @ Zagreb, Croatia

The Therapeutic Spiral Model’s (TSM) “Trauma Triangle” is a unique configuration that clarifes the destructive cycle of victim, perpetrator, and abandoning authority. Indistinction to Karpman’s Triangle, this last role was created by TSM to explain the sub- tle, 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 personal- ity 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 o ers training hours for Psychodrama and can be a stand-alone or foun-dation course for TSI’s International Certi cation Program in Trauma Therapy.

PRICES:
members of the Psychodrama Center – 200 € psychotherapists and educators of psychotherapy – 250 € others – 300 €
After 01.02.2019.

Men’s Retreat: Making Action Change in Your Life @ Philadelphia, PA
Aug 2 – Aug 4 all-day
Men’s Retreat:  Making Action Change in Your Life @ Philadelphia, PA
Men today are facing a world that challenges notions of identity and what it means to be a ‘man’. In order to find harmony in our life and society, we need to reflect on who we are within the world, strive towards accepting the various aspects of our own identity, while also building a more inclusive society. We must face the internal conflicts that tear us apart and block us from emotional intimacy, find a better footing in these challenging times as we define for ourselves who we want to be, and reawaken our wholeness after trauma.
This workshop explores various aspects of our experience and how it has impacted us in our work, in our relationships with others, and ourselves.
Potential topics to be explored will trauma, loss, addictions, recovery, culture, race, sexual orientation, gender, identity, disabilities, spiritual beliefs, ageism, inclusivity,
and diversity.
Using action methods inspired by the latest healing knowledge, we invite you to join us in this men’s group. Together, we will increase the strengths within ourselves, transform our defenses, and cultivate post-traumatic growth through experiential therapy, psychodrama, and the creative arts.
In examining the roles within ourselves, we can discern which ones contribute to us being the best men we can be, while also adding new roles to expand beyond the limits of our current selves. This workshop is experiential in nature, providing anyone who self-identifies as male with a safe place for personal work..
