In this experiential workshop participants will learn and practice two core action methods: doubling and role-reversal. We will explore how they can be used to engage parts of ourselves and others that govern the hunger and longing underlying addictive and compulsive behaviors. Attention will be focused on cultivating states that enable us to tap our inner sources of creativity and spontaneity. The didactic component will highlight the effectiveness and the theoretical roots of the methods demonstrated, drawing from the traditions and masters of Psychodrama, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Mindfulness.
