Building Connections: Using Sociometry to Expand Support Systems @ Arizona Inn - Tucson Room
Feb 13 @ 10:00 pm – Feb 14 @ 1:00 am


Healthy relationships and support are key to recovery from addictions and trauma. JL Moreno (founder of Psychodrama) created a science called “Sociometry- the quantitative study of interpersonal relationships especially that of preferences. This presentation will provide practical application of one sociometric tool, the social atom, for the clinical assessment of client support systems. Participants will practice creating their own social atom as well as facilitating the psychodramatic technique of role reversal. Role reversal creates and deepens empathy, enhances relationships and assists in healthy decision-making and boundary setting – all necessary components of developing a working recovery support system. Sociometry will also be used to facilitate a novel networking opportunity prior to the presentation.

Define the terms “Sociometry”, “role reversal” and “social atom.”
Utilize the social atom for clinical assessment of client support systems.
Apply the psychodramatic technique of role reversal in clinical practice.
