Therapy Play @ American Academy of Psychotherapists

imgres-1

Atlanta-based social therapist, Murray Dabby, led a “therapy play” at recent meetings of the national conference of the American Academy of Psychotherapists, themed:  The Core of Psychotherapy. 

His popular workshop, entitled, The Therapy Play, cast 35 clinicians into the role of collective therapist, as a single volunteer performed as the client.

I want to help therapists experience the activity of therapy, the activity of language. The performance of language games helps everyone let go of their focus on the truth,  and look instead at how we’re building the therapeutic relationship.
