Psychodrama Australia Perth Campus


Perth Campus

The Perth Campus aims to provide a range of opportunities for experiential learning applying Psychodrama, also referred to as action methods. This collectively includes group leadership, psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry and role training that facilitate on-going, progressive and creative functioning in everyday life, work and community situations.

Psychodrama is a general term that includes the philosophy, theory, and methods developed by Dr JL Moreno (1898-1974) and since then by the Australian Aotearoa and New Zealand Psychodrama Association Inc (AANZPA) and many organisations and countries throughout the world.

Psychodrama is conducted in groups and has wide application in education, organisational development, community development, health and social justice. This professional development is for anyone who works with others as counsellors, coaches, organisational consultants, team leaders, community service providers, managers, teachers, health professionals, or who are working with individuals or groups in any field.

As well as the full-year Training Program (view Here), workshops for Introduction to Psychodrama and Professional development using Moreno's action methods will be offered from time to time. These will provide Registraion information on this website and are open to those new to psychodrama and any professional people intered in developing more creative reponses to life.s circumstances and more satisfying relationships.

For interest in the Training program, please contact Kevin Franklin or Helen Phelan and see information below.

The AANZPA site has information on the annual conference held in January each year in various cities in Australia and New Zealand.

Moreno recognised that we are not only in relationship with one another; we are at the same time influencing and influenced by, the wider cultural and community systems that we are part of. We live and work in a variety of systems, from family systems, organisational systems, community, national and international systems.

We know the systems in our world through our own world view and perspectives. What you see, and what sense you make of the system, influences the decisions for interventions and engagement.

You are invited to explore the systems in which we work and live through action methods that can develop new perspectives, uncover hidden dynamics and shine a light on the influencing forces and the choice points of tapping into the hope in the system. 

 Using sociodrama, sociometry and other action methods, together we will:

  • Appreciate the social and cultural ‘map’ of the systems and the expectations that this may generate
  • Experience and appreciate the relationships within the system, the dynamics operating, and participants’ individual roles and areas of influence.
  • Explore the values and belief systems that assist in keeping the system vital and alive to respond to the changing environment or hold it back.
  • Further develop the roles of social investigator, systems analyst and wise guide to creatively explore interventions, expansions, visions and actions emerging in the system.

For new participants, who are not yet formal Trainees, please contact us for a pre-workshop interview.

The workshop includes a processing Session for Trainees on Sunday starting 4:30 after the workshop. Cost $50 - Venue:same as wrokshop.

Current and Past Events

This workshop presents an opportunity for us to meet with others to explore various old and outmoded myths and legends which hold us back in our growth and development as healthy, competent and creative individuals. At significant times of change in our lives we are often restricted by old ways of doing things that no longer serve us well.

In the workplace and in life we are often required to deal with things that seem difficult to handle. These can be inner journeys or journeys in the world. Sometimes we respond with concern and sometimes with creativity and courage.
