Description

Diagramming the social atom provides a treatment map of the network of relationships. It can reflect relational constellations from the past, present or even a desired or feared future. Social atoms offer clinicians and clients a treatment plan that can be used as a worksheet or embodied through the empty chair, sculpturing, or role-play.

 

The social atom is essentially a diagram of any aspect, family, or friends in a person’s network. It can be a full process done on paper and shared in one-to-one or group therapy, or it can begin on paper and then be put into role plays, sculptures, or full psychodramas. In this session, we’ll explore the following types of social atoms and learn how to draw, share, and move one into role play.

 

Types of Social Atoms

  • • Present Day Family Mapping
  • • Family of Origin Family Mapping
  • • Treatment Protocol (a social atom on entry into treatment, during therapy, and diagramming a desired future.) 
  • • Frozen Moment
  • • Empowered/Resilient Moment
  • Future Projection
