The question often arises - what is psychodrama? Aspects of the answer appear on this page. Psychodrama is a profound way to look at life in all its complexity and chaos.
Psychodrama training is an exceptionally engaging training method. Each person's life is a drama, and each person acts many roles in their life.
The training is experientially based, is profound and involves participants working with the psychodramatic method as both participant, observer, researcher and student.
The training is taught through supervised experiential learning.
Psychodrama is taught experientially. This means that the training is highly interactive, involving you with working with yourself, your life, the life of others and the the development of the group. This method of teaching provides a form of deep learning that grounds the learning in your identity not just a series of ideas or techniques.
Those who participate in training sessions experience themselves in a wide range of roles. The ability to interact spontaneously and develop new creative solutions to problems of living are developed in sessions. The teaching is in response to what the trainee says and does in the training sessions.
The longer term programs which run over the year are designed to create a stong learning cohort. This cohort of peers will greatly assist your learning. It will give you a vehicle to practice the method as well as discuss areas you are challenged by or working through. This cohort helps to reduce isolation and usually a strong colleagiate bond forms with people doing the training.
An integration of theory and practice occurs. Trainees see and feel development occurring.
