Access Education


Sociometrics are embodied, research-based, experiential processes that are psycho-educational. Created by Tian Dayton, PhD, TEP, to fit easily into treatment, outpatient programs, clinics, and one-to-one settings, sociometrics help to take the guesswork out of incorporating psychodrama and sociometry into treatment. In this webinar, we’ll use lecture and film clips to demonstrate embodied process of both role play and group processes that engage and bond participants. We’ll see how floor checks incorporate research-based education that literally pulls dry lecture material off of chalkboards and turns it into spontaneous and alive case studies that both teach and heal. We’ll also learn how to use the trauma timeline to trace and work with developmental trauma.


Tian Dayton, PhD, TEP, is a Senior Fellow at The Meadows and author of 15 books, including Sociometrics, The Soulful Journey of Recovery, The ACoA Trauma Syndrome, Emotional Sobriety, and Forgiving and Moving On. She is the creator of the Relational Trauma Repair (RTR) Sociometrics Certificate offered by NAADAC. She is also a Huffington Post blogger. Dayton was on the faculty at New York University for eight years teaching Psychodrama. She is a fellow of the American Society of Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychotherapy ASGPP, and is the winner of the Lifetime Achievement award, Scholar’s Award, and President’s Award. Dayton is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychotherapy and sits on the Professional Standards Committee. She is also the winner of the Mona Mansell Award and The Ackermann Black Award. Dayton has been a guest expert on NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Montel, Rikki Lake, John Walsh, and Geraldo.
