Psychodrama is an applied experiential, group method. It is learned in a group and can be applied in a variety of settings – therapeutic, educational, organisational and community.

“Our levels of spontaneity are affected by context and relationships.

Spontaneity flourishes in a universe in which some degree of novelty is continuously possible”

Jacob Moreno (Founder of Psychodrama)

This workshop will introduce Morenian thinking around Spontaneity – its different forms, its relationship to anxiety and how we can train ourselves to be more present and spontaneous.

We will focus on being fully present in the moment: what it looks and feels like, what gets in the way and what assists us and how it enhances our capacity to be both with ourselves and with one another.

The workshop aims to wake us up to our spontaneity and to assist us to look with fresh eyes at the possibility of the present moment.

This training workshop will invite the trainee to consider the work of Virginia Satir, family therapist to explore the meaning of and the application and integration of systems theory in sociometry, organizations, role theory, family therapy and group work. The systems focus assists enormously the warm-up of the person you are with. It means that when theres a system focus that individual starts to develop a fluid warm-upthey can relate to the different elements of the system and they are affected immediately by the different elements of the system.The Living Spirit of the Psychodramatic Method (2004 Clayton and Carter p.147)

Trainees ability to make assessments will be enhanced during this workshop. There will be opportunities to investigate how the psychodramatic method can assist people who are anxious and depressed to warmup creatively and spontaneously to life. Trainees will familiarise themselves with what leads to anxiety and depression? Waking up to spontaneity and creativity can help to unblock repressed emotions and create healing.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,  DSM-V, will be introduced as one resource among many  during the weekend and a YouTube The Five Main Anxiety Disorderswill be used as a warm up to introducing the topic.

Psychodrama is a relational  method. Dr JL Moreno the founder of psychodrama provides us with concepts and methods that enable us to recognise and articulate and apply elements and processes which constitute a relationship and enable us to participate to our mutual benefit.  In this workshop participants will be able to investigate in detail what is involved in a healthy constructive relationship. Capacity to apply and practise these insights will be an integral part of the workshop.

In this first workshop we will explore and explain the Morenian stages of individual development: matrix of identity, the double, the mirror and role reversal. The associated specific psychodramatic techniques, doubling, mirroring and role reversal, will be applied.

In The Living Spirit of the Psychodramatic Method (2004) Max Clayton, who up until his death in March 2013, was a psychodramatist and trainer in Australia, and many other countries, reflects on how he develops a strong warm up to the stages of development from a psychodramatic point of view.  Re the Matrix of Identity, Max notes that at a very young age a person starts to become aware of themselves in a variety of situations. We can think of a person who has developed a strong trust in life, they start to generate an awareness of things happening around them and they become aware of their own actions and sometimes become more aware of their own experience.” (Clayton & Carter 2004 p.46)

Attitudes, Values and Concerns - Sociodrama - Navigating Multiple Relationships.
Boundaries, professional ethics, sex, money, conflicts of interest, dual relationships. In traditional societies these complicated matters are closely codified and norms taught and enforced. We live in a society where the traditional protocols between individuals no longer apply and are not passed on, even where there is token acceptance. This often bewildering and painful maze demands sophisticated abilities to negotiate.
Participating in this workshop will alert participants to potential conflicts of interest in their own world and in that of those around them. Action investigation and role-reversal, and perhaps some healing, will feature as we seek to develop more adequacy in navigating these cross currents.
