Level 1, 156 Pacific Highway (cnr Greenwich Rd), Greenwich, Sydney

In this workshop we will consider the structure of a psychodramatic session and the timely application of psychodramatic techniques.
November is often a time of integration of the year’s training and professional development and a time to be conscious of the learnings of the year  so they can be carried forward into our practice as group workers and individual consultants and clinicians. It is an opportunity for all participates to direct, be an auxiliary and also a protagonist within the weekend.

Curious about psychodrama and what makes it work? Thinking about whether it is for you? 

This program is the perfect place to start.

9.30am - 4.30pm
Level 1, 156 Pacific Highway,, Greenwich, Sydney

The best way to understand the power of psychodrama is to experience it and these evenings are designed to give participants an opportunity to experience psychodrama in a safe and gentle environment. Each session will be directed by an experienced psychodramatist with time available for questions about the method and its applications.

7pm - 9.30pm
Level 1, 156 Pacific Highway, Greenwich, Sydney

Boundaries, professional ethics, sex, money, conflicts of interest, dual relationships. In traditional societies these complicated matters are closely codified and norms taught and enforced. We live in a society where the traditional protocols between individuals no longer apply and are not passed on, even where there is token acceptance. This often bewildering and painful maze demands sophisticated abilities to negotiate.
This workshop will alert participants to potential conflicts of interest in their own world and in that of those around them. Action investigation and role-reversal, and perhaps some healing, will feature as we seek to develop more adequacy in navigating these cross currents.

In this workshop we will explore the  application of  the psychodramatic method  to work with  traumatised individuals. We will consider psychodramatic techniques and specific application in assisting the clinician  in the healing of a protagonist who has experienced trauma with resultant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Enactments will inform our understanding and use of action interventions. The workshop will assist particularly in the theory and practice of the Clinician and Therapeutic Guide in dealing with this important area of focused learning.

Ken and Barbie are only dolls, but they send a powerful message regarding how one should present oneself in the world. Everyone has a story about their gender identity, what it is, how it developed and their sense of comfort and 'fit' with that identity. Come along and participate in an open night where the psychodrama method will be used to explore this vital theme.

Psychodrama Australia Sydney is delighted to welcome Jo Dewar who will run this session. Jo is a psychodrama practitioner and counsellor. She has many years experience working in the area of domestic violence and drug and alcohol counselling.  Jo is passionate about personal development, especially in the area of gender issues.

Psychodrama Professional Development Workshop, Canberra: Integrating imagination and intuition
- Increasing our own capacity to move between fantasy and reality in our work and life.

The imagination is a rich source of insight and inspiration passing through the awareness of each human at all times.
Psychodrama (the play of the soul) enables us to have fun and create meaning as we play with the images that arise spontaneously or through guided fantasy (book or movie or relaxation activity).
It also assists us to integrate these constructively in our daily life and work.

This workshop will focus on building a culture in which relationships flourish, where we are able to live and build, where 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.
