The purpose of this five-day intensive training workshop is to train in psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training and general group work. It is designed to bring about a greater ability to practice the psychodramatic method whether in a psychodrama therapy or growth group, in community groups, in individual counselling and psychotherapy, in education, staff training, or in pastoral care and to function in a leadership capacity in groups and organizations.
The workshop is for beginning, intermediate and advanced trainees and is designed as training for those working as teachers, trainers in organizations, nurses, physicians, psychiatrists, social workers, counsellors, clergy, occupational therapists, marriage and family counsellors, and community workers. Those attending come from Australia, New Zealand and other parts of the world.
Learning Outcomes and Process
Those who attend will experience a wide range of concerns emerging in group sessions. There will be a greater development of new ways of functioning as psychodrama directors, role trainers, auxiliaries, group leaders and group members, as a result of contacting other aspects of the self and through supervised practice.
Trainees may expect to to direct psychodrama and role training sessions and to learn a considerable amount of psychodrama theory and practice. The emphasis is on supervised experiential learning, producing, and integration of theory and practice, leading to more satisfaction in professional functioning and personal living.
