Theatre Improvisation (improv) action techniques reduce our reliance on controlling the future and experiencing a playful, risky aliveness in the moment. For 35 years Rehearsals for Growth (RfG) improv techniques have been used both in clinical practice and the training of therapists.
Training in RfG’s Improvisational Methods prepares therapists for their practical application— RfG training via Zoom demonstrates how these techniques are applied in our teletherapy sessions. Come engage in enacting these playful techniques, preparing you to employ them in either virtual or face-to-face therapy!
In these module series, each highly experiential training will focus on one or two case examples centering on the use of particular, well-tested RfG Games/techniques. Trainees will both be able to practice these Games and learn how they may be adapted to their own cases.
In accordance with RfG Certification Program requirements, trainees with greater RfG experience will receive assignments in advance, including readings and leadership of RfG games & exercises, in order to progress toward completion of their Certification.
