The psychodrama method has at its heart the matter of action, of active productive participation. The theatre that Moreno created was envisioned to be a ‘safe retreat for unsuspected revolution, to offer unlimited possibilities for spontaneity research’.

The psychodrama stage represents the world – the world at large and the world within. It is also a blank canvas, a billboard, an empty sky. It beckons and challenges each one of us to display, reflect and refresh the nature of our actions, our interactions, our way of thinking and perceiving. It allows us to practice, to rehearse what we want to rise up for, to give voice to, to rise up against.

In this training workshop, we will highlight the matter of rising up, stepping forward. The methodology will be the psychodrama method and group work, and there will be teaching as well as opportunities to produce enactments and lead group sessions.

Supervised practice and experiential learning means that participants can expect to be actively involved in all aspects of the life of the group.
