Webinar Description

90-minute webinar

    Learn how a dramatic role-reversal with an artwork can reveal insight in this LIVE 90 minute webinar. 


    Psychodrama and dramatherapy have gifted us a method of externalising created artwork. In taking on the role of the painting or sculpture made by the client, the artwork’s voice can answer the questions posed by its creator. 


    During this webinar, you can experience a very simple way of making an artwork on a particular theme and then asking a question of your own created work.  You will be guided clearly through this process and have the opportunity to share reflections in breakout rooms. You will also have time to consider the applications of this process for your own counselling practice and hear from the presenter about case applications.

    Learning Outcomes

    By the end of the webinar you will be able to:

    1.  Identify the dynamics of role-reversal
    2. Become aware of possibilities of the discovery of insights in artwork
    3. Identify strengths to deal with role-reversal
    4. Reflect on connections with the participant’s own life
    5. Consider applications for counselling practice
