The Melting Clock A Psychodrama Technique for Grief Work in Individual Therapy
Experiential Zoom Training Workshop

This experiential zoom workshop will explore loss and grief from the perspective of psychodrama theory, and the psychodramatic technique of the ‘melting clock’ developed by the presenter, specifically aiming at processing stuck, unresolved or pathological grief. The technique was originally developed for face to face work, but can also be adapted to online psychotherapy work via video platforms.

The work will include relevant aspects of theory and practice related to working with grief and loss, with the following aims:


3pm - 7pm


9pm - 1am


11pm - 3am

The session will be experiential, with demonstrations of the ‘melting clock’ technique, allowing participants to consider how to incorporate this into their own practice.

The workshop will offer 4 continued professional development training hours (CPD).
