Personal Growth Workshops

Valerie runs groups and workshops for people who want to do parts work in a group setting. Play Your Parts℠ Workshops include IFS meditations and parts mapping, psychodramatic role-playing, writing exercises, and “going inside” with Insight IFS. Techniques to learn how to speak for parts will be practiced.

Valerie is running an introductory workshop for individuals who want to explore their internal systems with IFS and psychodrama techniques.

Play Your Parts℠ Trainings for mental health professionals and coaches teach practitioners how to integrate IFS and psychodrama into their practices. Students learn the basics of both modalities, along with how to incorporate these healing methods. Ways to create a courageous group space will be explored, as well as learning to speak for parts. Students will discover how to facilitate externalizations of parts utilizing psychodrama, props, parts mapping, writing exercises, and art work. In these highly experiential workshops, students will learn and practice creative techniques using a combination of IFS and psychodrama.

Trainees who are becoming certified in psychodrama will receive credit for their training hours, as will experiential therapists who are certified through ISEP.
