Midwest Training Series begins its fifth year at Lake House

The new Midwest Training Series for professionals who want to learn psychodrama and experiential skills to enhance their work begins Friday, Sept. 24, with "Endings And Beginnings: Using Action For Significant Transitions," at Lake House Health and Learning Center, 932 Lake Ave.

The series, now in its fifth year, covers a range of material including sociometry and group skills, Systemic Family Constellation Work, sand tray and the Therapeutic Spiral Model as well as the historical and theoretical foundations of psychodrama.

Most classes are taught by Karen Carnabucci, right, a licensed clinical social worker certified in the new Systemic Constellation Work. Carnabucci is  working on a book titled, "Psychodrama And Systemic Constellation Work: New Directions for Action Methods, Experiential Therapy And Energy Healing" to be published in 2011.

Continuing education credits are available.

In the Sept. 24 class, from 9 a.m. to noon, Carnabucci  will teach participants how to bring action and simple rituals to working with groups and individuals who are beginning or ending relationships, jobs, careers or other kinds of transitions. Specific topics include:
  • How to evoke memories of past important events and experiences
  • Notice when you are the “bridge” of change.
  • Take appropriate action to acknowledge endings and transitions.
  • Honoring the new and the unknown.
Tuition is $35 and includes three continuing education credits and psychodrama hours for social workers, addictions counselors and licensed professional counselors. To register contact Karen Carnabucci at (262) 633-2645 to reserve your space by Thursday morning, Sept. 23.
