McVea, Charmaine How using psychodramatic production in supervision strengthens the emerging professional identity (PDF, 63.6 KB) Journal 32 December 2023 concretisation, insight, professional identity, Psychodrama, role reversal, supervisee, supervision In my experience of supervising new practitioners, I have noticed that simple psychodramatic interventions often have a profound impact on their spontaneity and confidence. One area of impact that I want to consider more fully, is how producing the supervisee’s presenting issue can bring into awareness some things that they already know and assist them to articulate their understanding and principles of practice. This has the effect of further integrating what they have learnt into their practice and strengthens their emerging professional identity. 9 2023-12
Postlethwaite, Jenny There’s Lots of World Out There (PDF, 194.6 KB) Journal 30 December 2021 academic mentoring, coaching, creativity, human development, insight, J L Moreno, mentoring, metaphor, organisational culture, spontaneity, supervision Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space (Card, 1995); sparking our imagination, our creativity, our understanding; providing us a royal road of relating to situations and possibility. Here follows a scene from a classic musical. I invite you to warm up to the world of a developing psychodrama practitioner. Don their garb, enter into this scene, sense the role relations, experience the spontaneity, look for what truth, insight and inspiration it may offer for them. 5 2021-12
Browne, Rollo Psychodrama and Insight (PDF, 102.0 KB) Journal 22 December 2013 brain wave, catharsis, creativity, insight, intuition, spontaneity, warming up Insight in psychodrama occurs through the use of basic techniques such as concretisation, role reversal and mirroring. But it is not guaranteed. Drawing on research into the neuroscience of insight, the psychodramatist can explicitly focus on simple steps to maximize the possibility of insight: setting out the dilemma, shifting to a resting state and then bringing this state of being into contact with the presenting dilemma. 13 2013-12
