Groups change lives.
They do this by assisting people to develop the skills and capacities to maintain positive functional relationships in times of stress. These skills and capacities are so often missing in the families in which we grow up and the broader social systems of which we are a part.
Psychodrama groups provide the context to work at developing your ability to relate effectively to others and the unfolding process of your being human. We humans have extraordinary capacity to envision the world and relationships we want to be a part of and the potential capacity to create as we imagine. Too often as we grow our visions are narrowed down, sometimes to the point where we are focused solely on ourselves and our own survival.
The world, our communities and organisations, our families and ourselves are all interrelated. As we create ourselves as we want to be so we cannot resist creating the
world as we have envisioned it. We begin to build relationships and communities which respect and honour us as we are and within which our visions for ourselves begin to be fulfilled.
Psychodrama enables us to develop a life which is rich and full, to flow from inner toouter and back, to create and take joy in creation. It is a method that recognises our
interrelatedness with all that is and provides a solid means to address deep feelings and
the ongoing work of being human; that is to consciously create ourselves as we want to
be in the world.
Psychodrama will assist you to
• re-examine your current life situations, your past, your social networks and cultural context
• generate new perspectives on particular events or situations
• develop fresh responses to entrenched relationship dynamics
• prepare for future situations in which you wish to function with a greater degree of flexibility, vitality and immediacy
• bring together action, insight and ‘here and now' experience as you engage with life
• enlarge perceptions of yourself and others
