Psychodrama workshops in October, 2019- Peter Howie (Australia)

ROLE TRAINING, ROLE DEVELOPMENT & CHANGE WITHIN ORGANISATIONAL SYSTEMS

 

Dates: 5th and 6th, October 2019

For registrationCLICK HERE

 

This workshop will introduce and use sociometry and role training for organisational communication and to facilitate individual development and change. Participants will learn practical ways to apply action methods in order to work with their organisations, their clients, and themselves in the complex world of organisational settings.

 

Role training is a psychodramatic action method that applies creative and artistic processes to assist individuals to develop specific functioning that might be required for work, family, or community life. The process uses the wisdom of the group and utilises the breadth of the psychodrama method to investigate, assess, and design appropriate changes for individuals in specific contexts. Such contexts could be work, or family, or community life. Role training aims to develop interpersonal effectiveness through a specific focus on the development of one aspect of a person’s role or role system, or one defined aspect of their personality. Role training lends itself particularly to brief interventions.

 

Sociometry, used as an action method, is a process of making sense of relationships in team and individual settings. It leads to the conscious development of groups in workshops or communities, through making the unseen seen, reducing ambiguity and hidden agendas, and strengthening commonalities amongst individuals. Value is given to the investigation and assessment of visible and invisible links, the strength and weakness of these links, and the personal and cultural factors associated with attraction, neutrality and rejection in relationships. The aim of sociometry is to bring about a greater degree of mutuality between people, furthering group objectives for collaboration.

 

The training is based on experiential learning principles that emphasise both the personal and professional development of participants. This approach to learning aims to integrate conceptual and analytical functions in a context where each individual is actively experiencing the emotional and sensory impact associated with participation and involvement in a situation.

 

This workshop is suitable for  organisational trainers, social workers, psychologists, organisational consultants, Human Resource managers and specialists, teachers, School Principals, and other professional managers who need to learn new and powerful ways to facilitate organisational, team, and individual progress. Participants will be encouraged to work with their own and others real problems in their work settings.

 

Participants will be expected to bring forward their own real dilemmas and to work with others as they bring forward their own dilemmas and to work collaboratively them.

 

 

ACTION METHODS FOR COMMUNITY, FAMILY, AND WORKPLACE PROGRESS

 

Dates: 9th,10th and 11th, October 2019

For registration – CLICK HERE

 

This workshop will introduce and work with a variety of action methods to examine complex organisational and community settings. Through the use of sociometry and sociodrama, participants will discover the potency of using action methods to understand the system they are working with along with their own responses and strengths to deal with it. A variety of psychodramatic processes will be worked with in order to demonstrate the potency of action methods for organisational and individual change.

 

Action methods including processes such as sociometry, sociodrama, role training, concretisation, group work, spontaneity training, empathic development or doubling, and the development of a systems view will be demonstrated and worked with during this workshop.

 

Participants will be invited to bring their real-world problems from their work and use action methods in collaboration with the group to investigate these. Participants will have the opportunity to learn practical solutions to their individual dilemmas as well as learn ways of working in group settings with others. Apart from specific outcomes related to their own situation, participants will learn a range of practical skills for applications in other settings.

 

This workshop is suitable to  those wanting to know about and work with action methods in a concrete manner in work situations. Participants will be encouraged to work with their own and others real problems in their work settings.

Winding & Unwinding the Spirals in Our Life- A Psychodrama Workshop , Feb 2019 , Chennai

“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.
