Spontaneity – living in the present

Jacob Moreno created psychodrama to expand our capacity to be spontaneous beings. In doing so, we creatively express ourselves and progresses in our lives.  This orientation is unique to psychodrama methodology. 

This experiential method brings life into psychotherapeutic, educational, community and organisational settings.

When we ‘live in the moment’ we are truly creative beings.  In a familiar situation, the challenge is to approach such familiarity with freshness and vitality.  In a new situation, the challenge is to respond to the unknown with vitality that serves the situation.  The phrase, ‘a new response in an old situation and an adequate response in a new situation’ is often quoted in psychodrama.  Adequacy here means freshness and vitality in that context.

Participants in this workshop can expect to revitalise themselves as group members, auxiliaries in dramas, as protagonists and as directors of dramas.  You will also expand your understanding of what Moreno means by spontaneity as you engage in this recursive experiential learning experience.  

This Workshop will be led by visiting Trainer MARTIN PUTT from Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.

People who have attended some psychodrama, as well as Trainees, are welcome, and will find this workshop brings new insights to whatever field you work in, and in your relationships.. Peope new to psychodrama will need to attend an inteview with Helen Phelan.before Registering.
