Do you work with couples, families and groups?  Then learning the basics of Improvisation-based therapy methods, such as Rehearsals! for Growth, is for you. Step beyond the edges of talk therapy into the realm of curiosity, play and self-discovery. An approach that integrates components of Internal Family Systems, Drama Therapy, Curiosity, Playfullness and an understanding of how Status influences personal choices, RfG is an excellent tool for those wanting to try a new approach with minimal risk, and maximum adventure.

By now, many of us therapists have adapted to using teletherapy in working with our clients. Training in Action Methods such as Rehearsals for Growth (RfG) not only prepares therapists for conducting face-to-face therapy when that practice eventually is safe again-- RfG training via Zoom also demonstrates how many of these same techniques can be applied in our teletherapy sessions!


Daniel Wiener, PhD, LMFT, RDT-BCT - founder of Rehearsals! for Growth, an improv-based drama therapy approach to working with couples and families - has been a professor in the Counselor Education & Family Therapy department of Central Connecticut State University for years.  He is the author of several books on therapies that go beyond talk.  They include Rehearsals for Growth and Action Methods.

Jami Osborne, LMHC, MaCCS, RDT-BCT, RfG-CT - is a drama therapist/trainer, Rehearsals for Growth Certified Trainer and clinician who works mostly with adult individuals.  Jami is working on a book about using group methods, such as RfG, with individual clients.
