Training and Supervision for Addiction Counselors in Action Methods and Souldrama
A new model Integrating Two Models for the Treatment of Addictions: Souldrama® and the Twelve Step Recovery in Action
Training and Personal Growth for your Staff
In twelve-step programs, people heal partly through the telling and sharing of their own stories. It is through the sharing of the trauma and pain and the subsequent healing that people form common bonds that unite them. Then, to get beyond that connection of pain, they need to go further by sharing their soulful moments, their hopes, and their dreams. This requires re-establishing a relationship with their creativity and, through their higher awareness, connecting with others on a spiritual level. This workshop will begin to teach your counselor how the new seven stage group action model of Souldrama® can be applied to the process of recovery. Using action methods offers exciting and effective ways to expand and enliven communication, learning, skill building and self- discovery in groups with those in recovery from substance abuse. Who can use these techniques;
substance abuse counselors who are helping clients to move through various stages of recovery. The techniques used here can be used for action interventions in groups, with couples, individuals. As clients move from talking about to exploring their problems in action, opportunities arrive to heal the past and clarify the present and to imagine the future.

The Training Program- A sample
Sign up for one or all four sessions.
Action Methods for Steps 1-4
Participants will learn how to use action sociometry:
to define a group issue
build group cohesion and enhance communication
discover the hidden and relationships within a group through experiential methods.
Specific action warm ups to help focus on substance abuse related issues.
This is a wonderful tool for a group leader as it visibly shows “who is in the group?” Leaders will learn how to look at the connections within a group-who is over chosen, who is never chosen and who gets scapegoated. Sociometry makes transference visible within a group and makes our choices visible. The action method of sociometry makes us responsible for our choices. Taking responsibility is a vital to a patient’s recovery.
Action Methods for Steps 5-8
We all want to be seen and to be heard and to belong. Doubling is an excellent way and a valuable tool to “read between the lines”. Doubling deepens the client’s feelings, express the unexpressed, helps validate their feelings and helps to change their perception. Facilitators will learn how to use doubling in action with each other. Through doubling, transference is eliminated toward the clinician. Doubling can be used to help an “over productive client” focus on their feelings without shame and how to help the silent client, to speak
Action Methods for Steps 9-11
Role Play is involved to explore challenging situations that arise on the path to sobriety and to practice skills necessary to prevent relapse.
Participants will learn how to use the empty chair, role reversal and mirroring to enhance the growth of the clients.
“If God Were Among Us”
Participants will learn how to help the client break through denial and accept their powerlessness, enhance their relationship with a Higher Power, and to break through denial and accept their powerlessness. Acceptance is the decision to turn his or her “life over to the care of God as we understood Him Acceptance is the threshold to self-examination.
Here members explore their relationship with a higher power and gain a deeper sense of self-acceptance and unconditional self-love. Souldrama® builds on the idea of interactive conversations with a higher power as a way to live consciously. Participants become aware of their internalized image of God. In enacting the role of the “higher self” or some other benevolent spirit or entity, individuals find themselves embodying their own ego ideal, and as a result, the statements made in the course of role-playing become affirmations, which then consciously become associated with the emerging sense of self. When the ego ideal is wise rather than clever, loving rather than selfish, and giving rather than getting, individuals are helped to move towards healthier goals and from relapse to recovery.
