Spontaneity Training Weekend Workshop 11-13 June

Spontaneity Training Weekend Workshop

This training workshop will  focus on developing participants’ spontaneity through play.

Life presents each of us with many challenges. The capacity to respond in the moment with a new response to an old situation or an adequate response in a new situation requires spontaneity. There are many forms of spontaneity which group leaders and members of a group require to be effective.

Dr J.L Moreno says that spontaneity is trainable and recommends that the Psychodrama Director is the most spontaneous person in the room.
We will focus on many factors that assist abilities to be active whilst running a  group. We will also deal with difficulties that stop a person from warming up  in the moment.

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. This workshop will focus on building a culture in which relationships flourish, where we are able to live and build, where healing and purpose can be fulfilled. Passion and kindness go hand in hand along with a vision of creative living. Learning to reflect on ones behavior and others will assist in making interventions. Learning to embrace conflict and problem solving, rather than avoiding concerns that arise, will strengthen relationships and assist in the development of a positive group culture. Leadership abilities and the application of the psychodramatic method will be a focus.
The psychodrama method assists participants to increase their spontaneity and creativity through active participation. This participation includes group work, enactment and theoretical mini lectures. The program will assist in developing leadership and will lead to increasing abilities in relating to others.
The training assists  in developing confidence in group presentations and in the development of interpersonal and group skills.
This program is designed for professional people who are involved in health, theatre, management, leadership, consultancies, coaching, mentoring , supervision, art, writing, teaching, human potential and creative therapies. The process will assist in the deepening of abilities to step into the shoes of others and this will contribute to the effectiveness of those who are therapists, counsellors, psychotherapists, health workers, managers, trainers and educators, actors, artists, writers and poets. Supervised practice for advanced psychodrama trainees is also an aspect of this program.
New participants should arrange a face to face or phone interview to connect, to determine the suitability of this course and for discussion regarding the training contract. The course will consist of enactment, group participation and discussion. Participants are expected to be actively involved, in both days and the evening.
The learning of new skills may be emotionally challenging and participants are required to have abilities to sustain their life and are participating in areas such as studies, employment and social and creative activities.
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 recognised by AANZPA and can lead to certification as a psychodramatist, sociodramatist, role trainer or sociometrist.
