Many Ganǫhkwásra` staff members have completed or are in the process of being trained and certified in Psychodramatic Bodywork. There are two parts to this work; intense emotional release work and psychodramas.
Intense emotional release work offers individuals a safe method of expressing intense feelings of anger, fear and sadness associated with experienced trauma.
Psychodramas are an extremely reparative, role-playing technique. Staff members are given roles and lines to speak by the participants. Individuals are supported to address their feelings to these characters in a safe environment. With this technique individuals are challenged to take on the perspective of the other characters involved, enabling them to gain a wider perspective beyond their own. New approaches to a situation may also be practiced. Further perspectives are offered as the staff members de-role and explore their own experience with the role they played as well as insights to playing that particular role.
