Do you work with couples, families and groups? Then learning the basics of Improvisation-based therapy methods, such as Rehearsals! for Growth (RfG), is for you. Step beyond the edges of talk therapy into the realm of curiosity, play and self-discovery. An approach that integrates components of Internal Family Systems, Drama Therapy, Curiosity, Playfulness and an understanding of how Status influences personal choices, RfG is an excellent tool for those wanting to try new techniques to supplement your existing practice with minimal risk and maximum adventure.

These techniques can be used in Teletherapy as well as in face-to-face therapy sessions!
