Learn with Experienced Trainers at Psychodrama Australia Today

This website is designed to serve those interested or involved in exploring and learning about psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training. This includes all uses of action methods for group work, group training, group leadership, and group psychotherapy.

What we are up to

Psychodrama Australia seeks to awaken and strengthen the abilities of people in many settings to express themselves relevantly, responsively and creatively in the ordinary here and now situations in which they live and work. Training is pertinent to people interested in enlivening personal, interpersonal and group functioning in the fields of health, education, organisational development and creative arts.

The training deals with the experiences of the individual in groups and emphasises a systems approach to living. Trainees can expect to develop greater sensitivity and proficiency in interpersonal, group and inter-group relations.

Imagine how warmed up you will be by the end of this training workshop as you explore your own development within the group to aspire to new attitudes, behaviour and resolution of conflict. This will enable applications in your life and work. Integrating a new functioning of your behaviour and attitudes in daily life is a task worth undertaking and your  'creative genius' bursting into new life within you will guide you. You will learn how to  warm the group up to a wide range of situations as you direct and lead during  this weekend. In the Theatre of Spontaneity Jacob Moreno taught people to unfreeze their familar ways of working and freed them to act and interact on the spur of the moment.

Zerka Moreno likened psychodrama to a three-legged stool. The first leg is psychotherapy, the second is group work and the third is sociometry. In order for the stool to be balanced, all legs must be equal. In this workshop we will be paying attention to the second leg – group work.

One of the most powerful aspects of the psychodramatic method is that it clearly evokes a sense of an individual’s capacity to transform and evolve. Once a trainee has mastered the basics of directing an enactment, ‘who they are’ as they direct is most often more important than ‘what they do’ in bringing a protagonist to a sense of their own potency. To do this, the director must be able to access their own spontaneity and hence, their capacity for transformation. As Moreno wrote, “More important than the evolution of creation is the evolution of the creator” (1949).

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.
