Please Note: Registrations are essential.   Commences at 6.30pm

This open night will be 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 Dimitrio 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.

Canberra - Spontaneity Training 3-day Weekend Workshop 20 -22 August

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desire for safety, the avoidance of the unknown and of appearing odd or different, the fear of letting go outdated roles and developing progressive roles’.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

Leadership:  This can be in formal and informal settings. We are all confronted with life situations when we are called for to show leadership. The question is when to speak up and when to be silent. When to act and when not to act.

The Psychodrama method assists us to look as situations and to practise different responses that take the situation forward and into healthy responses. The method allow a person to free themselves from old dysfunctional habits to bring to the foreground abilities , spontaneity and an expression that enhances one's formal leadership roles.

We will experiment through the use of actions methods to explore different situations that allows one's true ability to come forward. It will allow a person to learn to stand alone in confidence that their leadership takes the group or organisation forward towards their stated goals.
