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contradictory desire for safety, the avoidance of the unknown and of appearing odd or different, the fear of letting go outdated roles and developing progressive roles’.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...

The focus of this workshop is for participants to develop abilities in themselves and in teaching others - to be loving companions to assist each other to live out their life purpose and vision.

Psychodrama examines the individual's relationship with relevant others. It also takes into consideration the nature of the 'role relationship' that takes place within therelationship - these ares are called the 'social and cultural atom'. Through the process of enactment and group process the protagonist and group members will develop abilities to 'place themselves in another's shoes', role reverse and to make conscious choices about how and when to relate to others.
