Training involves attending the year-long programmes, training and experiential workshops, reading, writing, peer group activities and supervision. Most courses are open to those who wish to develop their professional abilities without necessarily becoming certificated practitioners.
- Core Curriculum Training introduces the core elements of the psychodrama method.
- Intermediate Training strengthens trainees’ directing, auxiliary and group work. At this point trainees write a short paper in an area of interest applicable to their work.
- Advanced Training. Trainees are required to choose a primary trainer, to belong to AANZPA, to run groups in the community and have supervision on their work.
The CITP may create multi-level training groups to suit training needs.
Trainees choose ‘Elective Workshops’ (these are the same for both Christchurch groups and incur no extra fee for those enrolled in the full year’s programme). Anyone may apply to enrol in these workshops.
