Long Weekend Workshop 12 - 14 July 2024



Be More Effective as a Clinician


This training is for counsellors, psychotherapists, teachers, doctors, artists, writers and those working in organisational development and human resources. The program is designed to enhance participants’ professional practice.

Psychodrama is a method developed by J.L. Moreno who was a psychiatrist. He began to explore the combination of psychology and drama early in the 20th century.

He conceptualised and practiced the notion of spontaneity and creativity as a way to heal and enhance human development.

 Pychodrama theory includes role theory, systems theory, sociodrama and sociometry. Moreno began with sociodrama as he could see that society required a healing process. He soon learnt that groups and individuals required a therapeutic process and he then developed psychodrama, role training and sociometry

Many influential theorists and practitioners have used Moreno’s ideas to develop their specialty.

Western Medicine has developed as a corner stone of health management in our culture. It is now essential that practitioners understand systems of diagnosis and psychopathology and are able to collaborate with the medical system.

Psychodrama training gives the clinician the ability to provide people with a process that will work with the medical model. Psychodrama also adds extra dimensions to the treatment process.

This workshop is experiential and will provide an opportunity for participants to develop roles to assist the understanding of cultural difference, spiritual diversity and to broaden abilities to relate to a wide range of people. 

Participants are expected to be actively involved. The learning of new abilities may be emotionally challenging and participants are required to be able to sustain their life and be participating in areas such as studies, employment and social and creative activities.

New participants should arrange a face to face or phone interview to connect, to determine the suitability of this course and for clarifying the training contract.

A certificate of attendance will be given on request and may be used for points towards required professional development and psychodrama certification. The training hours are accredited by AANZPA.
