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.

Making a community
Community can be looked at from many points of view.
In this training workshop we will focus on roles that are required to assist in creating and developing a community.
Self-presentation, understanding our attractions to and rejections of others, increasing the  flexibility of our responses to situations, and working with differences of opinion will be investigated in action and discussion.
Participants will be encouraged to practice leadership, take initiative and to be active group members.
Finally we will draw conclusions about the essentials of a community from our experiences in the workshop.
Leaders: Annette Fisher, Richard Hall

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.  In this workshop participants will be able to investigate in detail what is involved in a healthy constructive relationship. Capacity to apply and practise these insights will be an integral part of the workshop.

Many of us are committed to an on-going process of learning throughout our lives. We each have many experiences which assists us to develop. How we learn, explore and process those experiences can assist us or hinder us in learning. A person can be an open learner, a most helpful style to integrate and process experiences and communication. Other styles of learning include being a dependent learner, an anxious learner or a fighting learner.

In this workshop we will consider and explore the many learning styles to assist us when working with a variety of people, as well as in our own evolution. It will assist us to be alert to the particular personality and role systems a person enacts and how that person explores and learns from a particular experience. It will also assist us as to integrate roles we enact in response to anothers efforts to learn.

In this workshop we will consider the structure of a psychodramatic session and the timely application of psychodramatic techniques.
November is often a time of integration of the year’s training and professional development and a time to be conscious of the learnings of the year  so they can be carried forward into our practice as group workers and individual consultants and clinicians. It is an opportunity for all participates to direct, be an auxiliary and also a protagonist within the weekend.
