When you submit the form:

Being current is an AANZPA requirement. AANZPA Practitioners stay current through self-reflection, learning with other practitioners and engaging in regular, relevant supervision of their work. The currency process is designed to ensure professional development and accountability. When you renew your AANZPA membership by paying your fee invoice, you will also be declaring that you have met all currency requirements and that you are in good standing with AANZPA. You will then be issued with your Annual Practice Certificate.

Members who are scaling down their practice can discuss proportional and appropriate currency requirements with the Membership Secretary memsec@aanzpa.org.

Hours Required

Members are required to undertake a minimum of 25 hours of professional development relevant to their area of practice in each membership year (1st July to 30th June). These 25 hours will include at least 10 hours of supervision with another relevant professional in order to enhance learning, promote role development and discuss ethical issues. The additional 15 hours can be fulfilled in a number of ways, such as participating in regional currency meetings; participating in workshops and conferences; planning and presenting a workshop you have not previously led; writing or reading professional papers and books.

AANZPA Peers

A minimum of 10 of the total 25 hours professional development will be undertaken face to face with other AANZPA practitioners. (Where necessary, this may be by Skype, phone, or via letters, email or reports). Strong sociometric links build our association and assist us to keep our professional practice in tune with developments in the psychodrama field. In addition, they offer an opportunity for mirroring and encounter, particularly valuable when we are confronted by difficulties in our professional practice.
