Diploma in Psychodrama Psychotherapy

We offer a fully accredited psychotherapy diploma course, a professional qualification recognised by the British Psychodrama Association and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. This is a post-graduate level training and typically takes a minimum of four years to complete on a part-time basis. The diploma course provides a theoretical and practical understanding of the methods of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy. It is both didactic and experiential, and there is a strong focus on observing and working with group process. Diploma trainees typically attend six to eight weekend events and one or two 4-day residentials per year in their first two years of training, and slightly fewer events during their 3rd and 4th years, when they focus more on clinical practice.

Criteria for acceptance on the diploma course include:

Previous experience of personal therapy, preferably psychodrama (applicants should have 50 hours of psychodrama experience before applying); First degree or professional qualification, or suitable evidence of academic achievement / competency; Experience of working with people in a responsible role, e.g. teaching, social work, nursing, etc.; A detailed CV, two references and an interview with Course Leaders Susie Taylor and Clark Baim are required. Once accepted onto the diploma course, each trainee will discuss their particular requirements, taking into account previous experience, particularly mental health or psychotherapeutic qualifications.

New trainees may join the course at any time of the year. Full details of the diploma course can be downloaded from our website,
