√..awesome training .... I can’t tell you the difference it’s made in my approach…it’s finally clicked! I had the most wonderful session yesterday with a child and I know it’s going to help me enormously with my group I run. Thank you.
√.. was the best training workshop I've been to!
Under the guise of play and pretend, we can - for once - act in new ways. The bit of distance from real life afforded by drama enables us to gain perspective on our real-life roles and patterns and actions, and to experiment actively with alternatives.

Without the need to be extroverted or "dramatic", you can learn usable skills to assist those in your groups and therapy room feel more welcome, connected, liked and self-determined.
Through experiential learning, practical activities and case study illustrations, this workshop will introduce you to using drama and action based methods in counselling and group work. You will have a chance to participate in core dramatherapeutic processes including embodiment, drama games and play, story enactments, and role play which can be applied to a range of clinical settings and issues such as anxiety, trauma, bereavement and life transition challenges.
Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, psychotherapists, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students who are interested in incorporating drama into therapeutic work. No previous drama or creative experience is required. Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
