An evening of Psychodrama with Rollo Browne.

The founder of Psychodrama, JL Moreno, famously said that rather than analyse people's dreams, psychodrama enables people to dream again. 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. 

This evening will introduce you to psychodrama – a technique for exploring and resolving dramas in our lives. Bring a friend for an evening of learning and fun.

At the heart of psychodrama is spontaneity, ‘a readiness for a free and vital response to the emerging moment’[1]. Spontaneity is imbued with both the creative (vital, flexible, free-flowing, new) and the relational (responsive, here and now, purposeful). All these qualities are essential to the production of a psychodrama. The more spontaniety we bring as a director producing an enactment, or as an auxiliary producing a relationship, the more we assist the protagonist to bring the enactment to life and for new responses to emerge.

In this workshop we will experiment, using improvisation, imagination and metaphor, to bring spontaneity to enactments. There will be a focus on:

·      Playing with improvisation routines that build warm-up to fuller expression, 

·      Recognising the difference between impulsivity and intuition, 

·      Translating  intuition into action, and 

·      Producing metaphor to step aside from a problem-solution paradigm.

This training workshop is suitable for people who want to develop their use of psychodramatic action methods in their work as educators, coaches, trainers, therapists and group workers. People with experience in psychodrama and those new to the method, are welcome.

Jacob Moreno explored the roots of creativity in human evolution, philosophically and above all experientially. These sessions will be applied to daily life including work, play and relationships, with a view to increasing the capacity to rise consciously and creatively to life’s challenges. The experiential, systemic, action process known as the psychodrama method is also learnt in the process.

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...

Leadership:  This can be in formal and informal settings. We are all confronted with life situations when we are called for to show leadership. The question is when to speak up and when to be silent. When to act and when not to act.

The Psychodrama method assists us to look as situations and to practise different responses that take the situation forward and into healthy responses. The method allow a person to free themselves from old dysfunctional habits to bring to the foreground abilities , spontaneity and an expression that enhances one's formal leadership roles.

We will experiment through the use of actions methods to explore different situations that allows one's true ability to come forward. It will allow a person to learn to stand alone in confidence that their leadership takes the group or organisation forward towards their stated goals.
