Sociodrama brings life to the questions that a group or community is grappling with. Using action methods, the group investigates the social system to gain a broader and deeper experiential understanding of the dynamics at play. The sociodrama director encourages group members to warm up to the different roles in the system, so that stereotyping is minimised and the essential motivations and concerns of all parties are portrayed. Through the concretisation of the system and the enactment of relevant scenarios, group members experience the system from these different viewpoints and new responses become possible.

This open night is led by Dimitrios Papalexis, an advanced Psychodrama Trainee and Associate Member of AANZPA.

Individuals and societies have important life milestones. Those milestones and expectations can change from generation to generation and individual to individual depending on the social, cultural,  political and economic context and also our personal values. In this open night we will explore, through the method of psychodrama, personal meaningful milestones (past, current or forthcoming) and the wisdom they carry.

About Dimitrios Papalexis: Dimitrios is a counsellor, trainer and consultant on youth and community development, storytelling and arts. He has been awarded the NSW Youth Worker of the Year Award in 2019 and the “A Cause for Applause” Score More Foundation award in 2020. His passion lies in blending creative, community and healing arts for social change and impact.

Psychodramatic role theory provides a framework for understanding human functioning in a holistic and non-judgemental way. The individual is seen in the context of their life and relationships, taking into consideration developmental experiences that impact on their current orientation to the world. Attention is given to cognitive, feeling and action elements of human functioning, to the person’s capacity to warm-up in a way that promotes vitality, and to their ability to relate to the emerging moment.

This program focuses on the application of role theory as a holistic approach to assessment and as a guide to clinical decision-making.

This year long training program covers the core knowledge, skills and personal development that underpin the practice of Morenian methods (psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry and role training). It equips participants to integrate psychodramatic processes into their professional practice, bringing greater vitality, depth and immediacy to their work.  

The course is designed for you to bring Morenian experiential methods into your thinking and practice. You will have the opportunity to experience psychodrama, broaden your production capabilities, develop greater flexibility in your group work and deepen your therapeutic and systems interventions. You will master the basic techniques, understand warm up, see and feel the effect of increased spontaneity in yourself and others. Imagine if you could bring this spontaneity into your work! The purpose is to apply your learning in your work and life, to be more effective in your work and have more satisfying interactions.

Psychodrama focuses on reclaiming your innate spontaneity – ‘a readiness for a free and vital response to the emerging moment’ (Phil Carter).  Spontaneity infuses daily life with potency and flexibility, so that you create more satisfying relationships and find the value in what is here and now. 

In this 2-day workshop, we will use psychodrama to bring greater spontaneity to the issues that matter to you. There will be a focus on sustaining a warm-up to areas of life that are fulfilling and generative, working through habitual patterns that no longer serve you, and realigning thoughts, feelings and actions to bring a fuller expression of yourself in your life.

Friday 26th June (evening) to Sunday 28th June 2020.

With Hilde Knottenbelt & Charmaine McVea

The shift in context facing each one of us as we live with the impacts of COVID 19 has meant that many of us have had to reimagine aspects of our lives and futures. In the midst of this disruption and loosening to some of our patterned ways of living, there is a possibility to reconfigure, reassess and to dream again.

Using the psychodrama method and arts making processes, this workshop offers an in-between space where the stories we tell ourselves about who we are can be paused and perhaps reimagined. It offers a liminal space where the experiencing being can stay with what is, as part of engaging in a creative process.
