An evening of Psychodrama with Rollo Browne.

Moreno described Psychodrama as the Theatre of Truth. This evening will introduce you to Psychodrama - a technique for exploring and reimagining dramas in our lives and in society. The best way to understand the power of Psychodrama is to experience it and these evenings are designed to give you an opportunity to experience Psychodrama in a welcoming environment.

Bring a friend for an evening of learning and fun. Join in the action or be part of the audience and experience the drama unfold. Experience the power of action methods and gain new perspectives on the way we relate in today’s world. There will be opportunities for questions about the method and its application.

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.

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.

Canberra - Spontaneity Training 3-day Weekend Workshop 17 - 19 June 2022

This workshop will  focus on developing participants’ spontaneity through play.
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.
