Learning to Play in Recovery
Recovery is hard work. It involves going to meetings, getting a sponsor, working the steps, among other challenges like confronting painful emotions and dealing with old wounds. Individuals in substance abuse recovery often need to avoid past toxic party habits by avoiding people, places and things, and learn to seek other sources of sober “fun”. Recovery also involves learning how to be emotionally sober and live life on life’s terms.
In my practice, I have seen transformational results with clients who have learned to let go, play, and get to know their inner child through psychodrama. This month, I will be hosting an open psychodrama workshop at my new Inner Stage office where we will engage in play as a group to awaken your inner child.
Looking forward to working with you!
