The Effectiveness of Psychodrama with TLC Faculty Member, John Naizby

In this episode, I sit down with long-time TLC grad and faculty member, John Naizby. John practices law in Connecticut but has consulted with cases in all 50 states. John has a quiet demeanor but his fight is extremely strong and that shows in this conversation. When he first started with TLC in 2000, he doubted the effectiveness of Psychodrama in his life, a TLC foundational skill. Once he started to realize how it could improve his relationships, his daily responses in life and his overall perspective, he has been able to deal with accepting difficult news. Every year TLC faculty members and staff love having John at TLC events because he brings a different approach and can relate to some students in a way that no other faculty member can. His love, passion, and commitment to his clients and the college are admirable and I feel lucky I had the opportunity to get to know him at TLC’s 3-Week July College this past year.
