Humanising our Social Systems: a sociodrama training workshop
‘The psychodramatic method is based on the idea of highly motivated human beings acting on the aspirations and deepest concerns of the society or subculture or small group in which they live.’
AANZPA Training and Standards Manual

This training workshop will focus on the tipping point where an organisation or social system realises its humane values, or, forgets or overlooks them. Kindness, helpfulness, collaboration, transparency, trust and empathy will be evident in a humane culture. The systems will be forgiving and compassionate; matters that are heartfelt by the individual are respected, tolerated and hopefully enjoyed. The loss or absence of these values results in a culture that is highly competitive, callous, heartless, severe and ‘machine like’.

This weekend we plan to liberate those aspects of ourselves that are a force for good so we are more able to sustain ourselves in the organisation culture and social groups in which we are working and living. We will explore systems that participants are actively involved in, unpack the complexities of these groups and organisations, formulate an analysis and create interventions. Sociodramatic enactments, sociometric investigations and role training will be the methodology applied in the workshop.
