When and how will the training be held?
The training will take place on ZOOM with the following schedule:
June 6 12 Noon - 1:15 pm EST Training
June 13 12 Noon - 1:15 pm EST Training
June 20 12 Noon - 2 pm EST Practice
June 27 12 Noon - 2 pm EST Practice
You are welcome to attend all four hours of practice sessions, and you will benefit the most from doing so. However, you are only required to sign up for one day of practice, which will include your leading a mini-Bibliodrama and your being a commenter on another's Bibliodrama. In the other hours of practice, you will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills by watching, as a "fly on the wall."
Mini-Training in Bibliodrama
with Yael Unterman
What is Bibliodrama?
Unlike a play which "acts" out a scene and has a predetermined script, Bibliodrama is a way of accessing the inner life of the characters of the Bible by using one's own social-emotional impulses to understand the motivations, emotional reactions and questions in the mind of the characters.
Participants always speak as "I," reminding us that a full being (like the ones in the Bible) may have conflicting ideas, emotions and motivations.
Facilitators know how to ask the right questions to get to the heart of the text. Facilitators also know how to reflect back what participants say and encourage a multiplicity of voices.
All of this will be covered in the training and practice sessions so that you are well equipped to lead congregations, groups, or friends and family in a meaningful encounter with the text of the Torah.
What is the certificate?
Upon completion of the training and at least one hour of practice sessions, you will receive a certificate with your name stating that you completed this Mini-Training in Bibliodrama.
Can I work with Yael beyond this training?
Participants of the course will be eligible for a special one-on-one session with Yael at a discounted rate following the course.
