Experiential Therapy/ Psychodrama*
Psychodrama groups at Capella and Magellan are one of the most unique therapeutic modalities that Safe Harbor offers. This work is integral to the programmatic emphasis on Trauma Recovery. Sociometric techniques help build group cohesion and safety, so that women feel more comfortable sharing their trauma histories with each other. Psychodrama allows women to safely explore past experiences, or current barriers to recovery, through role-play and other forms of enactment. In doing this, women will draw on group support to create new solutions or to approach challenges with a stronger identity. As group members share about how they can identify with or relate to the experiences of other group members, shame begins to transform into self-acceptance, connectedness and mutual support.
