SPONTANEITY

'propels an individual to a new response to an old situation or an adequate response to a new situation'.      (J.L. Moreno, founder of Psychodrama)

In response to the COVID-19 health challenge confronting our community,  the Sydney-Canberra Campus is not conducting workshops on-site at this time. This has meant that some workshops and all open nights have been postponed. 

Alternative arrangements are being made with trainees in the ongoing training program, and supervision remains available online or by phone.

We are in the creative process of developing some of our workshops to be offered in interactive-online forums. Information about these workshops will be available on this web-site as they are developed. 

Check in on this site from time to time to see what is emerging. And if you want to be kept up to date with developments, subscribe for news by leaving your email details and selecting 'Sydney-Canberra Campus',  in the box above.

All our good wishes to you, your families and communities.

Shine Like The Sun: 

Recognising Role Conflict, Embracing Role Integration and Valuing Role Development
It requires, for most of us, courage and trust in our spontaneity to lead a group or direct a psychodrama. As Max Clayton (1992:1) notes, in these moments we are negotiating two powerful forces that exist in an uneasy and dynamic relationship: 
‘an inner urge to grow, to live fully in the moment, to experience purpose and meaning, to create ideals and live by them, and a contradictory desire for safety, the avoidance of the unknown and of appearing odd or different, the fear of letting go outdated roles and developing progressive roles’.

The aim of this residential workshop is that you, as trainee directors and group leaders, will increasingly live in the progressive roles that you have developed to date, that you will recognise role conflict, embrace role integration and value role development, that you will, in Pink Floyd’s words, ‘shine like the sun’ (Shine On You Crazy Diamond, 1975).

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.                                             

And you will know that, in psychodrama, as in life, being young is a matter of spontaneity flow...

There are several specific action techniques developed by JL Moreno used by all psychodrama directors. Some have been integrated by other modalities in working with people. In this workshop the range of techniques used in psychodrama will be highlighted. Each session will focus on one or two techniques and its use in bringing reality and depth to work in groups and individually.

Psychodrama Professional Development Workshop, Canberra: Integrating imagination and intuition
- Increasing our own capacity to move between fantasy and reality in our work and life.


The imagination is a rich source of insight and inspiration passing through the awareness of each human at all times.
Psychodrama (the play of the soul) enables us to have fun and create meaning as we play with the images that arise spontaneously or through guided fantasy (book or movie or relaxation activity).
It also assists us to integrate these constructively in our daily life and work.

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 behaviour 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.

Zerka Moreno likened psychodrama to a three-legged stool. The first leg is psychotherapy, the second is group work and the third is sociometry. In order for the stool to be balanced, all legs must be equal. In this workshop we will be paying attention to the second leg – group work.

This training program will demonstrate and teach the psychodramatic method. In particular how the method can bring life and creativity into professional practice. The instruments of psychodrama and psychodramatic method can be used in teaching, psychotherapy, health professions, counselling, management, creative therapies, organisational development, coaching, mentoring, relationship and family counselling and supervision. 

Participants will be encouraged to explore those who have inspired us in our life, those who have assisted that fire within to be set alight and have assisted us to live out our dreams. We will explore through action those moments and their effects on our lives  and assisted us to live out our dreams. We will explore through action those moments of ‘waking up’ .

Recently it has been widely recognised that success in counselling and therapy is hugely dependent on the quality of the relationship between the practitioner and the client. Hope and skill are also important in this and any professional work.
This weekend will draw out the characteristics of a relationship which assists others to develop. Participants can expect to develop these abilities further themselves.
