Michael Gross, PhD, CADC-CAS,CP, PAT, is a Board Certified Practitioner of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. With a particular interest in trauma and the body and the impact of developmental trauma, he has had extensive training in Psychodramatic Bodywork®and has completed intermediate level training in Somatic Experiencing®. He has worked in the field of addiction recovery for over six years, and, for more than three years, has facilitated psychodrama groups for survivors of trauma and neglect, as well as addictions and eating disorders. He integrates principles of twelve-step recovery into his work with groups and individuals, and seeks to embody them in his own life. The Journal of Gay & Lesbian Social Services published his first co-authored, peer-reviewed paper this spring on applications of action methods to address stigma, shame, and isolation among gay men. Oh, and don't be misled by the PhD … it's in history, specifically the history of science. Michael spent the first decade of his working life teaching undergraduates and spent subsequent years recovering, during which he was involved in an array of roles and projects related to preventing HIV infection among high risk populations.
