This workshop seeks to expand our understanding and expression of creativity to enhance our lives and work.

Moreno developed the Canon of Creativity, providing a model toassist us to warm up to and express more creativity, applying it to everyday moments of challenge in life as well as generating a lighter approach to the tasks that may normally tire us, 

He also considered we all have in us the role of "Creative Genius" and can learn to develop and express this energy and imagery within us to shape our worlds of connections, creative decisons and solutions, the making of things and appreciate all creative expression of ourselves and others.

This workshop will bring together many of the aspects of learning over the year and mix them and shape them in creative ways that we can all take forward into our lives.

The workshop offers deeper exploration of Tele and our sociometric positions in this group and other social contexts (e.g.work). The process of applying sociometric questions will also be explored in action.

We will work with themes that emerge from the group.You will have the opportunity to be group member, a protagonist, an auxiliary, a director/producer or small group leader

Moreno recognised that we are not only in relationship with one another; we are at the same time influenced by the wider cultural and community system that we are part of.

We know the systems in our world through our own world view and perspectives. What you see and what sense you make of the system, influences the decisions for interventions and engagement.

You are invited to explore the systems in which we work and live through action methods that can develop new perspectives, uncover hidden dynamics and shine a light on the influencing forces. We will use sociodrama and other action methods.

 

This workshop forms part of the Introductory Psychodrama Training Program 2020. Trainees are encouraged to reflect on a system in the work or life to explore with the group.

 

For those new to psychodrama, please contact us for a brief pre-workshop interview.

The psychodrama method is relational and embraces the whole person. He proposed we are always in relationship and he developed role theory and practical appreciation of the dynamics in our relationships through sociometry. How are we drawn to one and not others, how come we may feel rejecting of others? or How is it that we may feel non-committal or neutral, about some people. These patterns and connections can be explored so we can gain new insights and form a ‘map’ of our social relationships. Moreno named the living ‘map’ of our relationships at a point in time as a Social and Cultural Atom.

A key aspect of Moreno's approach is the healing and expansion of our Social and Cultural Atom, the intra and interactive system of roles in our living network. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore your own social and cultural atom on paper and/or in action.

 

This workshop forms part of the Introductory Psychodrama Training Program 2020.
