Core Psychodrama Training in 2019 - Dates

Event Cost: 

Core Psychodrama Training Brisbane 2019

Psychodrama training calls for expression of our inner self through our body and mind. We create norms in the training group that enable us to:

  • quiet the cold and turbulent winds of the past
  • free ourselves up to be uniquely purposeful
  • deepen our sense of who we are and what we are becoming
  • express what we learn through practical application in life itself.

Trainees are asked to make a commitment to one another to attend each session and to engage with one another’s development. There will be an emphasis on establishing and maintaining cohesion and trust in the group and developing a climate conducive to new learning.  Training endeavours to provide the setting to learn the whole psychodrama methodology through experience. Reading, writing, reflecting and discussing the principles and application of this method begin on day-one of training and continue through to certification as a practitioner. Certification can be gained after four or more years of training, writing, and a practical assessment.

Trainees will create opportunities to practice this methodology in their work. It is through the application of the method that abilities are developed and refined. Creating a peer group further assists refinement and expansion of psychodrama abilities. Supervision in the application is a key element of development.

Term 4 includes attendance at a five-day non-residential training workshop that enables working with the aspirations and deepest concerns of society. This workshop is open to all AANZPA trainees.
