“The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see deeper truths.” ~ Barry H. Gillespie
To help you make noticeable shifts in your understanding of what has been holding you back experience the ‘Winding & Unwinding the Spirals in our Life’ – Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy Workshop.
According to Dr. J.L. Moreno, in psychodrama “a man can play the part of a woman and a woman can play the part of a man; an old person can take the part of a child and a child the part of an old person; a man can be an animal; an object can be a man.”
Psychodrama is essentially a group action method that helps a person to embrace one’s own capabilities. This could be used in clinical setting (hospitals, therapy centers), non-clinical setting like a business establishment in team building, conflict management, stress management, identifying and working with stress, improving communication, building trust, identifying issues etc. This is a spontaneous and creative method which is used by certified psychodramatists who is otherwise called the Psychodrama director. A director enables or facilitates a re-enactment of real life situations, past incidents / situations or an inner mental process but, acting them out in the present time.
The basic concepts of psychodrama are:
- The warm-up, preparing for an act
- Spontaneity and creativity
- The encounter
- Concretization and acting out
- The mirror
- The double
- Sensitivity training
- Role playing and role reversal
- Surplus reality
Who can attend: Home Makers, Working Professionals, Psychotherapist/ Counsellor, Students of Psychology and Social Work and anyone who is curious to experience Psychodrama – This training will give you additional tools to understand and build your profession.
