therapeutic factors, and group members’ roles and behaviors.
  7. Outline the basics of planning, conducting, and evaluating groups and learn how to begin and run a group.

‘Unmasked’ – Psychodrama Workshop on 16th & 17th June 2018 at Delhi

We all wear a MASK outside, be it a workplace, in family, relationships, in general to the outside world. The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first. Your Joy is Your sorrow UNMASKED. It helps one to get in contact with your inner self and this knowing is helpful so that you can live with more purpose and joy. 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.
