W6: Issues of Identity: A Sociodrama Training workshop

Year: 
2016
Institute: 
Wellington Psychodrama Training Institute

Having a sense of belonging creates meaning in a person’s life providing a sense of purpose and identity. Very often however a person’s identity is defined by what society recognizes and values as legitimate contribution i.e. what they do, a chosen career or qualification. And yet there are times when this type of categorisation is not relevant or has lost meaning or does not do justice to the scope of a person’s core identity. Quality of life is greatly enhanced if a person has the opportunity to express their central psychodramatic roles and to receive recognition for this in society. In this workshop participants will use sociodrama to explore what this means both personally and as members of society in New Zealand today.

Participants can expect to:
• Identify where in their lives they experience a sense of belonging
• Identify fields of endeavor that provide meaning and purpose for themselves and others
• Identify their central psychodramatic roles and relationship between these and specific groups in society
• Develop appreciation for the elements of our society and organizational functioning that either inhibit or encourage self expression and what actions might be taken to enhance a sense of belonging.

Training and supervision will be provided for those interested in directing sociodrama and attention will be given to role theory and the relationship between psychodrama and sociodrama.
