Social Therapy, A Performatory Approach: An Introductory Online Seminar

Presented by East Side Institute for Group and Short Term Psychotherapy

Description:
Why should building groups help people suffering from emotional pain? Why should performing on stage help young people develop? Why should pointless conversation develop all of us into better learners? And why should people of all ages and places play more, no matter how busy or difficult life is? These practical questions stem from the success of social therapeutics as a methodology for human social-emotional-intellectual- cultural development in diverse settings.

For over 20 years, in collaboration with social therapy founder Fred Newman and Institute co- founder and director Lois Holzman, Carrie Lobman has developed innovative applications of social therapeutics in a range of pedagogical settings, with children, adults and families. Her research on play, creativity, learning and development has informed the Institute's broad meta-psychological critique of mainstream psychology and education. In this 5-week introductory online course, you will learn this critique practically, by exploring the social therapeutic approach at work in key human environments: psychotherapy, classrooms, out-of-school youth programs, and the workplace.
