Developmental Transformations: Theory, Methods, and Applications
This workshop will give an in-depth overview of Developmental Transformations and its applications both in clinical and social contexts. DvT is a method of helping people enter and sustain a healing playspace consisting of spontaneous improvisational play with others. DvT is based on a perspective on existence that encourages people to decrease their fear of the instability of experience, rather than attempting to attain that stability, which inevitably leads to controlling how other people behave. Working toward the ability to be present in the middle of life’s tumult – the very task of improvisation – is the spirit of DvT. We will explore how this works with severely ill clients, people who have experienced trauma, students in public schools, and on the streets.
