Spontaneity and Research: We can’t have one without the other
6:00 – 9:00pm (3hrs)
This workshop will aim to re-establish the links between spontaneity and research, so pivotal to Moreno’s early work. Together, participants will seek to redefine core principles of Psychodrama psychotherapy concerned with understanding, qualifying and quantifying what, why, how of meaningful healthy relating between people as it relates to research in the broadest sense. We will also aim to explore how the process of research, experienced and examined through a lens of curiosity and creativity, such integral components of research, can contribute to a deeper appreciation and application of the therapeutic model.
There will also be space for participants to ‘play’ with research through testing ideas and developing potential projects to enhance their stages of learning and development.
The workshop will be facilitated using some didactic teaching methods however there will be a significant emphasis on action learning.
