Psychodrama Introductory Free Workshop

December 7 @ 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Date: December 7, 2018

Time: 3:00 PM-4:15 PM

Presenter:  Nancy Scherlong LCSWR, PTR, CJT, MS




Have you ever wished that you could talk to rather than about someone? Venting can only take us so far. Sometimes we need to practice new behaviors or resolve old issues by putting them into action. Psychodrama is one of the six expressive therapies (along with art, dance, drama, music and writing) that can complement your healing process.

Using experiential methods, enactment and reenactment, sociometry, role theory, and group dynamics, psychodrama facilitates insight, growth and change, and integration on cognitive, affective, and behavioral levels. It clarifies issues, increases physical and emotional well being, enhances learning and can help us to develop new skills.

Groups are facilitated by Nancy Scherlong, LCSW, PTR, CJT, M/S who is a licensed clinical social worker, credentialed poetry and journal therapist and long-time practitioner in the action methods of psychodrama. She is an advanced student of and has been an open-session presenter at the Hudson Valley Psychodrama Institute where she is currently completing her certification process. Starting in January, 2019 groups meet one Friday late afternoon or one Wednesday evening weekly for 6 weeks. New members are welcomed every 6 weeks, and existing members can continue if they wish.

Please contact our office at 845-471-1807 or email us at for payment information and registration details or speak with your clinician. This group is for participants ages 18 and older. If there is adequate interest, we will form children’s and adolescent groups. Many group treatments work best when paired with individual support. Group therapy does not replace the need for individual treatment.
