A weekend psychodrama training workshop run by Cher Williscroft

In this workshop ‘Making Humane Interventions in Social Systems’, we plan to act on those aspects of ourselves that are liberating, so we are more able to sustain ourselves in the organisational cultures and social groups in which we are working and living. This may be a work organisation, community group, team, or group.

We will explore systems that you are actively involved in, unpack the complexities of these groups and organisations, formulate an analysis and generate relevant intervention strategies.

The actions you take will aim to uplift your spirit and free you from oppressive forces and hopefully promote humane values. Sociodramatic enactments, sociometric investigations, psychodrama and role training will be the methodology applied in this standalone workshop.

‘The psychodramatic method is based on the idea of highly motivated human beings acting on the aspirations and deepest concerns of the society or subculture or small group in which they live.’   AANZPA Training and Standards Manual 2020
