Dr. Meg Givnish is a nationally known clinician, educator, trainer and motivational speaker. Dr. Givnish was among the first group of professionals to be Certified as a Trainer, Educator, Practitioner by the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. She trained at the Moreno Institute under both Dr. J.L. Moreno and Zerka Moreno from 1979 through 1982.
Meg was also a member of the group that founded and developed the Horsham Clinic in Ambler Pennsylvania in 1972 where she served as Director of the Psychodrama Department as well as Director of Professional Education until 1984. During this time she established The Academy of Psychodrama at Horsham Clinic where many professionals began their journey toward official Certification by the newly established Board of Examiners.
After the death of Dr. Moreno, The Horsham Psychiatric Group purchased the Moreno Institute with the approval and blessing of Zerka Moreno. At this time Dr. Givnish became President of the Moreno Institute in Beacon from 1981 through 1983. I
In May of 1980 the first performance of The Problem Solving Theatre led to requests for performances in settings from schools, to corporations and even to a presentation for The United Nations Peace Making professional. Problem Solving Theatre was inspired by the early work of Dr. Moreno with the Theater of Spontaneity. PST is a form of Improvisational Theater which incorporates the Clinical techniques of Psychodrama and Sociometry . It is an adaptation that has been called “Psychodrama at arm’s length”.
Meg now continues the development of Problem Solving Theatre at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches where she is Executive Director of Clinical Development at this highly recognized treatment center with programs for treatment of Addictions and Mental Health diagnosis.
In development at this time is the establishment of a series of Training Programs in Psychodrama and Problem Solving Theatre.
