About the Workshop

We will build a cohesive working group in a supportive, positive environment. The purpose of the teaching is to develop greater flexibility in functioning, a greater perceptiveness and a wider range of functioning in the here-and-now situation. The training will introduce you to the core elements of the psychodrama method and then strengthen your abilities as directors, auxiliaries and group members. Trainees are encouraged to write short papers in areas of interest applicable to their work.

You can expect to stretch yourselves and to identify and get involved with the perceptions, and values, of people who challenge you, especially in your professional capacity.

Psychodrama methods are effective, empowering, and fun. Psychodrama was created early in the twentieth century by J. L. Moreno. It has been continually evolving and developed since then as a method that emphasises action, rather than talk – because people learn through action and interaction with others. Since its inception, psychodrama has had a significant impact on psychotherapy, group psychotherapy and professional training. Psychodrama has a strong theoretical foundation and philosophy and uses many techniques aimed at deepening emotional expression, building cognitive insights and developing roles.
