PANZ Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington Training Programme

The 2024 programme presents on-going training in psychodrama and group work as well as associated experiential events in which psychodrama and other active group work methods will be utilised to explore of the complex social and cultural questions relevant to living in our contemporary world. In 1942, with the opening of the Sociometric Institute and the New York Institute of Psychodrama, J. L. Moreno envisioned psychodrama as a method that brought together the stage and the theatre with psychology, education, sociology, cultural anthropology, psychiatry and other branches of the social sciences. Today we would include, more specifically, the arts and especially the fields of music, movement and voice.

Linked to these training workshops there may be a series of personal and professional development events. Whether the workshop has a specific training focus or more of a personal emphasis, we will be learning about ourselves, each other and the world we live in together.
