6 consecutive Fridays, 9:30 – 11:00 am EST
Starting September 25, 2020

Why explore how RfG interfaces with other modalities?

Well, here are just a few reasons:

  1. RfG plays well with others.  It is a versatile approach that allows for spontaneity, flexibility and positive change.
  2. RfG can be utilized in conjunction with other drama therapy modalities and is often the catalyst for helping clients get “unstuck” in their drama therapy “play.”
  3. RfG is a useful adjunct to traditional talk therapy, as it allows the client the opportunity to “try on” changes before implementing them in “real life.”
  4. RfG is based on Improv Games, often used as Ice Breakers, which makes it an ideal tool for life and executive coaching
  5. RfG can be an excellent vehicle for teaching new skills, from academic to social, in a play-filled and safe fashion.
