We develop individualized programs utilizing tailor-made vignettes which focus upon issues that you determine to be relevant to your audience. We work with adults, young adults, teens and staff of all ages. We work with professional staff in agencies, schools, businesses and medical facilities. While we are open to using our InterACT New York format to highlight issues of your choice, some of the most common topics covered include: Speaking to parents about teens in trouble, ways to address teen/young adult issues such as self-harming behaviors, depression, social pressure, sexual pressure, substance and alcohol abuse, bullying/cyberbullying, eating disorders and suicidality. We also cover topics such as working with difficult people, customer relations and the Dr.-patient relationship.
Actors perform a series of vignettes for your audience. After each vignette, audience members are invited to ask questions of the actors while the actors remain in character. This facilitator-led discussion with our troupe of accomplished actors leads to a dynamic, thought-provoking discussion. When interacting with the characters on stage, audience members begin to question attitudes and behaviors, leading to heightened self-awareness.
InterACT New York addresses sensitive and complex topics in a real, relevant and memorable manner. By exploring characters’ inner motivations with the aid of a trained facilitator, audience members’ awareness changes and problems become insights.
