Canberra - Spontaneity Training 3-day Weekend Workshop 11-13 June

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desire for safety, the avoidance of the unknown and of appearing odd or different, the fear of letting go outdated roles and developing progressive roles’.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

Psychodramatic role theory provides a framework for understanding human functioning in a holistic and non-judgemental way. The individual is seen in the context of their life and relationships, taking into consideration developmental experiences that impact on their current orientation to the world. Attention is given to cognitive, feeling and action elements of human functioning, to the person’s capacity to warm-up in a way that promotes vitality, and to their ability to relate to the emerging moment.

This program focuses on the application of role theory as a holistic approach to assessment and as a guide to clinical decision-making.

This year long training program covers the core knowledge, skills and personal development that underpin the practice of Morenian methods (psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry and role training). It equips participants to integrate psychodramatic processes into their professional practice, bringing greater vitality, depth and immediacy to their work.  

The course is designed for you to bring Morenian experiential methods into your thinking and practice. You will have the opportunity to experience psychodrama, broaden your production capabilities, develop greater flexibility in your group work and deepen your therapeutic and systems interventions. You will master the basic techniques, understand warm up, see and feel the effect of increased spontaneity in yourself and others. Imagine if you could bring this spontaneity into your work! The purpose is to apply your learning in your work and life, to be more effective in your work and have more satisfying interactions.

Psychodrama focuses on reclaiming your innate spontaneity – ‘a readiness for a free and vital response to the emerging moment’ (Phil Carter).  Spontaneity infuses daily life with potency and flexibility, so that you create more satisfying relationships and find the value in what is here and now. 

In this 2-day workshop, we will use psychodrama to bring greater spontaneity to the issues that matter to you. There will be a focus on sustaining a warm-up to areas of life that are fulfilling and generative, working through habitual patterns that no longer serve you, and realigning thoughts, feelings and actions to bring a fuller expression of yourself in your life.

Friday 26th June (evening) to Sunday 28th June 2020.

With Hilde Knottenbelt & Charmaine McVea

The shift in context facing each one of us as we live with the impacts of COVID 19 has meant that many of us have had to reimagine aspects of our lives and futures. In the midst of this disruption and loosening to some of our patterned ways of living, there is a possibility to reconfigure, reassess and to dream again.

Using the psychodrama method and arts making processes, this workshop offers an in-between space where the stories we tell ourselves about who we are can be paused and perhaps reimagined. It offers a liminal space where the experiencing being can stay with what is, as part of engaging in a creative process.

Friday 26 June 5pm-7pm; Saturday 27th June 10am-1pm & 3pm-5pm; Sunday 28th June 2pm-5pm.
