CITP Training Programme 2019

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.

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 for their work.

The CITP may create multi-level training groups to suit training needs.

Application for Training

Trainees need to have, be working towards, or planning to attain a professional qualification in their chosen field. Your application is done in three stages:

  1. Apply using the online form here: Enrol.
  2. A Training Interview for new trainees: the purpose of the interview is to determine professional goals and to assess the relevance of prior learning, to outline the training process and to begin to develop a training plan. This interview is free of charge. Contact a Staff member or the CITP administrator to make an appointment.
  3. You will be notified of acceptance at the interview or by email. Your place will be confirmed by the payment of fees.

Once the enrolment is confirmed this Training Agreement is in place.
