Healing Stages is essentially a community of playback and psychotherapy done in a public format. It is group psychotherapy integrating psychoanalytic, psychodramatic, drama therapy, and internal family systems approaches to therapy.
Playback is a form of theater, where personal stories shared by audience members are performed within a creative group process. Interventions are made as needed within this creative context. Being witnessed is healing, and witnessing others’ process is healing, and the intention is to build community healing.
