‘Exploring the Stories of your Life’ – A Psychodrama Workshop for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

Psychodrama can help people find “a new response to an old situation, or an adequate response to a new situation.”

-Dr Jacob Moreno, the father of Psychodrama

Stories are all around us, and they are happening all the time. Stories teach and explain things, create emotion, and are often spontaneous. Creativity and spontaneity are two key concepts in Psychodrama, which can induce creative solutions to old situations.  Psychodrama is an active and creative method that enables participants to use guided drama and role-playing to work through issues.  The stories of individuals, couples, and groups (such as organizations, teams, associations, and families), involving various issues of personal and professional concern, can be explored through Psychodrama.

Dates: 17th & 18th December 2017

Timing: 9.30 am to 4.00 pm

Venue: Bangalore

OVERVIEW

Sociometry is a foundation of Psychodrama. Sociometry involves action methods to explore relationships and group dynamics. These explorations are underpinned by the “Role Theory of Personality”, a powerful means for illuminating both one’s internal intrapsychic landscape, and the interpersonal field of connection with others.

In this 2-day workshop, we would explore both Sociometry and Role Theory in a variety of action situations. These will be drawn from among the following possibilites:

  1. Spectrogram, Locogram, Barometer, and Action Sociogram.
  2. Personal Social Atom, and Role Inventory.
  3. Role Presentation, and Role Interview.
  4. Expanded Role Exploration; 2-role Encounter

Action explorations would include the Psychodramatic methods of the Double, Role Reversal, and Mirror.

Similarities and differences between Psychodrama and other practices such as Transactional Analysis (TA), and Playback Theatre would be discussed.

 

Who can train?

Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Transactional Analysis therapists and other professionals.
