This improvisation course focuses on group work, examining the potential benefits and challenges of eliciting, supporting and guiding individual expression and reflection within groups. There is an integration and extension of all previous improvisation course material and practicum experience. In addition, during this term students bring their practicum experiences of working with clients who have intense psychosocial challenges to reflect on the importance of choosing goals and facilitation approaches for safe and meaningful improvisational group experiences. Each activity in this class is examined for personal and clinical relevance, with consideration of contraindications and potential adaptations for specific clientele.
