The purpose of the Foundations year is to provide an introduction and overview of the entire content of the method – psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training and group work. The training is experiential meaning that participants learn at their current level of development through: practising directing, taking up auxiliary roles, becoming protagonists and through being group members. The process is designed to bring about an integration of theory and practice in each trainee. The training group is led primarily by Hamish Brown and Martin Putt.

In addition to the year-long programme there is a stand-alone workshop offered Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October 9:30am‐4:30pm each day. This workshop will be led by visiting trainer Chris Hosking. An announcement of the specific focus of this workshop will be made shortly.
