I'm excited to announce that I will be stating a supervision group! Please see the following details:
New supervision group for drama therapists will be taking in members starting in April. Group is able to take up to 6 members and will be meeting the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month in the afternoons for 75 minutes, exact time TBD.
The supervision group is geared for both new graduates and seasoned clinicians. In our group we will use a semi-structured format to address some of the following issues:
- Presenting case studies and gaining clinical support regarding particularly challenging clients
- Navigating work environment policies/politics
- How to manage up/manage supervises
- Explore how to utilize drama therapy interventions in a variety of settings, especially when creative arts therapy is not the primary modality used
The group will be meeting in Weehawken, NJ conveniently located near a major transit hub. Easily accessible by public transportation from New York City (10 minutes from Midtown Manhattan by bus or ferry) and from other parts of NJ (Light Rail and NJ Transit bus). There is plentiful street parking for cars. Free garage parking is available as well. Fee is $45.00 per group.
