2019 April  5 – 7   :   A weekend non-residential workshop (Friday evening plus Saturday and Sunday).  Limited to 15 people.

Join us in Nelson for returning, visiting trainer, Chris Hosking’s workshop “Repair and Renewal of the Social Atom – Restoring the Fluidity of Being”.

In a moment, a sudden, bewildering, and painful experience may result in a certain degree of crystallisation of our being. In the wake of these experiences, roles develop and have a significant formative influence on the way we perceive the world and the interpretations we make about one another. The process of social atom repair involves the identification, disentangling, clarifying and re-ordering the confused and inappropriately cathected aspects of self. Social atom repair seeks to restore a fluidity of being.

In this workshop we will explore the process whereby personal themes from past become projected into the here-and-now, the formation of roles at a point in time, and the interventions that can be made to enhance acuity and perceptiveness in the here-and-now.

We will be applying all aspects of the psychodramatic method.  In this workshop, you can expect to deepen your knowledge of social atom and social atom repair.

‘The psychodramatic method is based on the idea of highly motivated human beings acting on the aspirations and deepest concerns of the society or subculture or small group in which they live.’
