Membership of the BPA is open to anyone who is interested in Psychodrama, Sociodrama and Action Methods. The BPA welcomes members from all cultures, and you do not have to be resident in the UK to join. If you are not a qualified psychodramatist or sociodramatist, you can join as an Ordinary Member at a reduced fee.


Membership runs from January each year and normally includes two journals and six (bi monthly) electronic newsletters. These publications contain theoretical articles, research news, news about the membership and the Association, information about workshops and forthcoming events, plus views, reports and correspondence.

By joining the BPA you will become part of a worldwide network of psychodrama professionals who enthusiastically deliver, promote and develop their expertise.

BPA members also pay a reduced rate at the annual conference.


The BPA has an Annual General Meeting and Conference and there are related conferences and workshops throughout the year. Members also serve on the Executive Committee and sub-committees, promoting the aims of the Association together.
