Here’s what people are saying about API:

“A worthwhile experience! The trainers are professional, experienced, & passionate. I learned hands-on tools & techniques to integrate into my own practice with clients. I would recommend these workshops to anyone that wants to grow personally & professionally. These workshops are dynamic, creative and help professionals think outside the box.” – Jenny Scheid, LPC

“Every API workshop I have attended has increased my knowledge and skills and I am able to powerfully apply it in practice. The trainers energize and create an incredible passion in the art of helping. – Becki Encinas

“When working with AZ Psychodrama Institute, I leave with a sense that I experienced everything i could hope for. I have to believe that the method originator (Moreno) is very well represented by the heroic psychodramatists at API. There is a very strong heart & depth of knowledge within their trainers and training systems.” – Nick, MA Professional / Addiction Counselling

“Dr. Archer put on a fantastic workshop, it was informative and simplified so that I had no trouble understanding the concepts behind each psychodrama exercise and how they relate to the client. I plan to use these new tools I learned to help with the healing process of my own clients” – John McLean, MAPC

Today in session I used an exercise you demonstrated with wonderful results. I took what I learned yesterday and used it. The client referred to me as “magical!” I am glad to know it’s not me doing the work, I just have the pleasure of guiding him in it. I think I kind of improvised what was taught but it worked well and I could totally see using it again. It was awesome! Thanks again! You will see me again! – Matt Wheeler – Intern Ottawa University

“The workshops are well thought out and the modeling by the instructors is terrific. The instructors were honest, open and wonderfully real. Traning is hands on and help is always nearby when needed. Mistakes are considered and treated as learning opportunities.” – Alan A., Phoenix.

“Great Training! Can’t wait for the next one!.” – Gloria Whelchel, LPC

“Fun & active way to learn about psychodrama from knowledgeable, experienced trainers” – James Pennington

“I found the program to be enlightening and fun! The techniques taught in this course have already been useful with many of my clients.” – Troy Love, LCSW

“A great way to advance your understanding of sociometry and it’s importance in your clients’ lives”

“I will use these tools in my clinical practice”

Sunday, June 9, from 9.30a-3.30p (6 hours)

We will eat lunch as a group on Friday and Saturday at nearby restaurants. Check menus in advance to be sure your nutritional needs will be met and bring anything extra along you might need. Each participant will pay for his or her own lunches.

The opportunity exists for a number of other participants to do longer, complete psychodramas, potentially directed by advanced students with assistance from instructors.

Every effort will be made to allow those who want to do personal work to have an opportunity to be a protagonist in at least some short experiences. We are not able to guarantee that each participant will get to be a protagonist in a full psychodrama nor that each interested director will get to direct a full psychodrama, although every effort will be made to best meet the needs of the participants.

Twenty Five hours of training will be provided. API is an approved provider for NAADAC.

INFORMED CONSENT
I understand that this workshop is intended only as training, not as therapy. I am aware that psychodrama, sociometry, and group psychotherapy are powerful methods that must be used carefully. I understand that this is an experiential workshop, that is, I will be allowed and encouraged to participate actively. I understand that as a result of my participation, therapeutic issues for further exploration may be revealed and that it is my responsibility to seek professional services for therapy, if such a need should arise. Workshop leaders are available to make referrals to professionals in my area. API adheres to multiple codes of ethics and seeks to reduce your risks.

I understand that it is API’s intent to provide high-quality, interactive training based on the most current information available, revising workshop content at least yearly. It is, however, up to each attendee to independently evaluate the accuracy and utility of the presented materials. The proposed content of each API course is limited to the stated Learning Objectives.

I have also been informed that the workshop will be videotaped for training purposes. My identity will be held confidential and the video will only be viewed by trainers of Deb Gion, PAT or by fellow workshop attendees, with an API trainer. My registration for this workshop constitutes consent to be videotaped. My participation in this workshop additionally constitutes permission to participate in research that may eventually be reported in a professional journal, without my personally identifying information.

Here’s what people said about Beginning Director’s Psychodrama Intensive (June, 2013)

“The workshops are well thought out and the modeling by the instructors is terrific. The instructors were honest, open and wonderfully real. Traning is hands on and help is always nearby when needed. Mistakes are considered and treated as learning opportunities. Marlo and Debbie were ‘in the moment’ and highly respectful of the trainees while they directed and did their own work. I loved it and give it my highest recommendation!” – Alan A., Phoenix.

“When working with AZ Psychodrama Institute, I leave with a sense that I experienced everything i could hope for. I have to believe that the method originator (Moreno) is very well represented by the heroic psychodramatists at API. There is a very strong heart & depth of knowledge within their trainers and training systems.” – Nick, MA Professional / Addiction Counseling
