Learn with Experienced Trainers at Psychodrama Australia Today

This website is designed to serve those interested or involved in exploring and learning about psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training. This includes all uses of action methods for group work, group training, group leadership, and group psychotherapy.

What we are up to

Psychodrama Australia seeks to awaken and strengthen the abilities of people in many settings to express themselves relevantly, responsively and creatively in the ordinary here and now situations in which they live and work. Training is pertinent to people interested in enlivening personal, interpersonal and group functioning in the fields of health, education, organisational development and creative arts.

The training deals with the experiences of the individual in groups and emphasises a systems approach to living. Trainees can expect to develop greater sensitivity and proficiency in interpersonal, group and inter-group relations.

Getting with people in a compassionate but safe way is a valuable skill that can be learned and practiced. It is essential for parents, teachers, counsellors, mentors and leaders. A part of this is called empathy, another is often called "getting with the other person" in NLP they talk of second perceptual position, in psychodrama they talk of doubling and role reversal. This weekend is about increasing your understanding of how to increase your capacity to perceive others clearly. Develop real relationships. To be authentic and not to have to be the centre of attention. And, even more importantly, learn to free yourself from blaming others. 16-18 December - Friday evening, Sat and Sun
