This workshop will promote a non-judgemental, involved and patient approach that focuses on people, relationships and connection. Effective approaches will be demonstrated and discussed, in particular the application of psychodramatic techniques. The psychodrama method can be flexibly and creatively applied to areas such as legal, illegal or prescribed drug addiction and process addictions enacted by gamblers, workaholics and over-eaters.

This workshop is part of the ongoing training in Christchurch, other trainees, AANZPA Practitioners and those interested in professional development are welcome to enrol.
