2020 August 20 – 23  :  Join us at our annual four-day residential psychodrama, sociodrama and group work training workshop at beautiful Kimi Ora Eco Resort near Nelson.

As a result of this workshop, you can expect to apply your knowledge and understanding of group work, group leadership, psychodrama, role training, sociometry and sociodrama with the people you work and live with.  Our aim is to enhance your spontaneity, compassion, and resilience so that you are free and easy with each and every person you come into contact with, and you are fulfilled in your life and work.  We will be working with each of you to develop your ability to use the psychodrama method with clarity and creativity.  Let’s work together to make our lives vital and meaningful.

Cher Williscroft and Claire Guy have a vision to build your capacity for flexible group leadership and for directing psychodrama and sociodramatic enactments with courage.  We aim to co-create an open learning environment.  All trainees and practitioners will be encouraged to try out new things with generous encouragement and coaching.  Your learning may be through personal work, group leadership, auxiliary work, producing dramatic enactments, through writing and through the relationship you develop with others on the workshop.

Who attends?

This workshop is designed for people who work with people ie. in health, education, community and business organisations, social work, and other therapeutic fields. This workshop is designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced trainees.  Practitioners of the psychodramatic method are invited to enrol and be a part of this training event as part of your currency and we encourage you to bring aspects of your work for supervision.
