Souldrama® was developed by Connie Miller, NCC, LPC, TEP.,ACS. in 1997 and trademarked in 1999 as a therapeutic tool created for use as an adjunct to psychodrama and designed to move clients from co-dependency to co-creativity. Connie is the founder of the International Institute of Souldrama and also the owner of the Spring Lake Heights Counseling Center and Center For Codependency in New Jersey. She was employed for years as a career counselor and worked with families with children with cancer.Connie runs a group for professionals in training in action methods and also trains the staff at Seabrook House in southern New Jersey. She is a Trainer, Educator, Practitioner of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy.and is recognized as a Fellow for that organization and also received the 2011 Innovators Award.She received the Thelma Duffy award from the American counseling Association for cretivity and cutting edge practice for Souldrama. Souldrama is now being used as a new model for the 12 Step program.
Connie has developed a new model to access our spiritual intelligence that incorporates psychodrama, group psychotherapy, the creative arts, energy work and sociometry that she has called Souldrama®. She has had articles on this approach published in our own International Journal of Action Methods (in 2000), more recently also in the Korean Psychodrama Journal, "Souldrama: a psychotherapeutic technique to access spiritual intelligence", the Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, and a chapter in the recently published anthology from Routledge Publishers titled "Psychodrama: Advances in Theory and Practice. Connie has written a book on this approach (it has also been translated into Portugese and published in Brazil and most recently Indonesian), made cd-rom teaching materials, and has been most active in presenting on this method nationally and internationally! She has built bridges to a number of associated fields by presenting at the conferences of the American Counseling Association, the National Board of Certified Counselors as well as to the field of addictions. In addition, Connie has run trainings in Souldrama for the past thirteen years in Mexico, Portugal, Greece and in England, Brazil,Moldova,Romania, and Austria and presently runs her own training group in Souldrama and other action methods.
More recently she presented at the Transpersonal conference in Latvia, British Psychodrama Association Conference, in Greece, and planning training groups in Israel and Amsterdam and Connie has also been invited to India and Indonesia where she has led a tem of volunteers from Holland, Portugal and New Zealand to teach psychodrama, group action methods and soluldrama to the pastoral counselors, graduate psychology depts and health care workers. Connie is also employed by the Department of Defense on the death notification team helping to inform families of losses and injuries from overseas.
She is the author of many articles which have been translated in various languages integrating psychology and spirituality moving psychodrama to another level, that of the transpersonal. Her most recent article names Souldrama as the new holistic model for 12 Step recovery. All workshops and trainings offer training hours for the American Board of Examiners.
