This mixed level on-going training group will focus on the theory and practice that are essential to the psychodrama method: including – psychodrama, sociodrama, sociometry, role training and group work.

The training is experiential and interactive, and participants will learn about the application of this method in their personal and professional life. This training will assist those in leadership roles to develop their abilities.

There will be additional reading, writing and some practice activities to assist in the integration of experience and theory.

This series includes a weekend workshop (W2) that is open to a wider group of participants.
