ATCP Training Programme 2018

Training Programme

Training involves attending the year-long programmes, training and experiential workshops, reading, writing, peer practice group, social activities and supervision. Most courses are open to those who wish to develop their professional abilities without necessarily becoming certificated practitioners.

The Auckland Training Centre for Psychodrama (ATCP) structures its course into year-long programmes.  For some people the attendance at a year or two of training enhances their ability to do the particular work they are focused on. Other people experience a desire to develop a level of sophistication and excellence in working with people using the psychodramatic method.  These people work for 5  to 7 years to achieve certification with the Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand Psychodrama Association (AANZPA) as a Psychodramatist, Sociodramatist, Sociometrist or Role Trainer.

At the end of the training year, each trainee has a 40-minute consultation with members of the training staff to review role development, progress and abilities.
