Role training applies role theory and psychodrama techniques to bring about progressive role development in specific contexts. It is ideally suited to rehearsing life situations because it provides a structure whereby a protagonist can set out a challenging scenario from their life on the psychodrama stage, develop a fresh perspective, warm up to spontaneous action and enact a new response or role that meets that scenario more adequately. Spontaneity lies at the heart of this work, emerging in the here and now as the protagonist relates to the situation unencumbered by habitual responses from the past and meets the new moment with immediacy and vitality.

An essential function of the psychodrama director is to produce dramatic enactments that bring the drama to life in the here and now.  A psychodrama that is produced well is both aesthetically engaging and assists the group to enter into the action, bringing greater spontaneity to the drama.

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.

Boundaries, professional ethics, sex, money, conflicts of interest, dual relationships. In traditional societies these complicated matters are closely codified and norms taught and enforced. We live in a society where the traditional protocols between individuals no longer apply and are not passed on, even where there is token acceptance. This often bewildering and painful maze demands sophisticated abilities to negotiate.
This workshop will alert participants to potential conflicts of interest in their own world and in that of those around them. Action investigation and role-reversal, and perhaps some healing, will feature as we seek to develop more adequacy in navigating these cross currents.

In this workshop we will explore the  application of  the psychodramatic method  to work with  traumatised individuals. We will consider psychodramatic techniques and specific application in assisting the clinician  in the healing of a protagonist who has experienced trauma with resultant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Enactments will inform our understanding and use of action interventions. The workshop will assist particularly in the theory and practice of the Clinician and Therapeutic Guide in dealing with this important area of focused learning.

GENDER JOURNEY

Ken and Barbie are only dolls, but they send a powerful message regarding how one should present oneself in the world. Everyone has a story about their gender identity, what it is, how it developed and their sense of comfort and 'fit' with that identity. Come along and participate in an open night where the psychodrama method will be used to explore this vital theme.

Psychodrama Australia Sydney is delighted to welcome Jo Dewar who will run this session. Jo is a psychodrama practitioner and counsellor. She has many years experience working in the area of domestic violence and drug and alcohol counselling.  Jo is passionate about personal development, especially in the area of gender issues.
