Marylhurst Faculty Present at ASGPP Conference

Jacqueline Fowler and Dr. Jennifer Sasser presented at the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama conference in Oakland, Calif., in April 2014.

Dr. Sasser gave the keynote presentation on April 6, titled Honoring the Past, Dreaming the Future. In this interactive presentation, participants discovered how ancestors, individuals and the collective are honored, envisioned and enacted.

Following the keynote, Dr. Sasser and Jacqueline Fowler, interim director for the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessement, led a workshop titled Honoring the Past, Dreaming the Future – Part II. The workshop examined the topic more deeply, exploring next steps for participants, as creators of legacy and as future ancestors in the field of psychodrama, sociometry and group process.

Fowler also co-chaired the conference, which comprised nearly 100 workshops offered by U.S. and international trainers and practitioners, sharing their work and showcasing the diverse applications of psychodrama, sociometry and related expressive arts, for clinical and non-clinical environments.

The American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama promotes the development of creativity, spontaneity and encounter to enhance the relationship between individuals, families and communities, and works actively to heal and transform society through the knowledge and practice of psychodrama, group psychotherapy and sociometry in all its diverse applications.

Jaqueline Fowler is interim chair of the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment, home of Marylhurst's highly respected prior learning assessment program. She has been training in psychodrama and sociometry for 20+ years, and currently serves on the ASGPP Executive Council.

Jennifer Sasser is chair of the Department of Human Sciences and director of the gerontology program at Marylhurst University. She co-authored the textbook Aging Concepts and Controversies.
