A weekend standalone psychodrama training workshop run by visiting trainer, Chris Hosking

As a psychodrama group leader, we aim to establish and maintain cohesion, mutuality and trust in a group in order to develop a climate conductive to companionship and new learning.

In this workshop we will enhance the here-and-now experience, working with both the dynamics of the group and the psychodrama methodology.  The combination of these processes make the group unique, meaningful and relevant.

The psychodrama leader will encourage the expression of central-life concerns of group members which then become the basis of psychodramatic enactments.

This workshop will focus on inter-relatedness of the psychodrama method and the warm up of the group.


This workshop is suitable for:

Established group facilitators, new and prospective group workers, and those who would like to better understand or participate in groups.

The application may be in work teams in business settings, community setting, those involved in group therapy or clinical settings, NGOs.


If you are new to psychodrama, have not trained with us before or are returning after a long break from training, please contact us for a training conversation prior to enrolling to ensure you have the psychodrama experience needed to enter a training programme and our training programme will be a good match for you.
