The purpose of the Foundations and Developing Practice group is to provide new trainees with an introduction and overview of the entire content of the method – psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training, and group work; and to deepen and extend the theory and practice being learned by returning trainees. The training is experiential meaning that participants learn at their current level of development through: practicing leadership and directing, taking up auxiliary roles, becoming protagonists and through being group members. The process is designed to bring about an integration of theory and practice in each trainee. The training group is led by Hamish Brown.

In addition to the year-long programme, there is an annual 3-day stand-alone workshop offered by visiting trainer Chris Hosking (TEP) which all enrolled trainees are welcome and encouraged to attend. An announcement of the specific focus of this workshop will be made in due course.
