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.

Life presents each of us with many challenges. The capacity to respond in the moment with a new response to an old situation or an adequate response in a new situation requires spontaneity. There are many forms of spontaneity which group leaders and members of a group require to be effective.

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desire for safety, the avoidance of the unknown and of appearing odd or different, the fear of letting go outdated roles and developing progressive roles’.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

These workshop will focus on building a culture in which relationships flourish, where we are able to live and work. In which 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.

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.
