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.

November is often a time of integration of the year’s training and professional development and a time to be conscious of the learnings of the year  so they can be carried forward into our practice as group workers and individual consultants and clinicians. It is an opportunity for all participates to direct, be an auxiliary and also a protagonist within the weekend.
