See how the Trauma Survivors’ Internal Role Atom (TSIRA) has provided a clinical map of internal roles to safely and effectively use TSM across cultures, religions, politics, race, and gender in many settings. You will learn how the Asian influence has shaped TSM for 20 years as well as about its uses in the Middle East and Europe as well as North America. This workshop is an excellent introduction to the Therapeutic Spiral Model for the safe and effective treatment of PTSD and the enhancement of Post Traumatic Growth.

First offered the weekend before the annual USA Psychodrama conference, this workshop continues to grow as Mario returns from Bali to the Bay Area in Fall 2019. Now he brings another opportunity for you to experience an “in vivo lab” as we co-create how to reach across multicultural identity to bring people together to share their purpose. He is joined by Gabriel Thibaut, a Belgian who recently gained US citizenship, and Lisa Chu who is a Taiwanese American exploring her Asian roots. Join in the co-creation as we use the TSM Safety Structures to help you bridge and celebrate our differences, knowing we are all inter-relating cosmic beings.
