Our evenings are experiential psychodrama events. We offer a different director every month and we invite people to attend as often as they wish... To have as many tasters as they like. Each evening is two and a half hours long to allow time for people to share what they think and feel at the end... and ask questions … Come along! CPD hours are available from some presenters – please ask for details. For further details please visit our website: www.londonpsychodramanetwork.co.uk Open Session Dr Dusan Potkonjak There will be no pre-arranged theme, we will explore together spontaneous development of a group, and interests and needs of present group members. Then when there is enough motivation we will explore it on the psychodrama stage, in a safe and supportive way. It can be one scene or several scenes. Then we will share and later we will again follow group interest and explore it on the psychodrama stage. Open Session Dr Olivia Lousada Moreno, the founder of Psychodrama ran open sessions in New York in the 1960/70ies. To these events anybody was invited to come, participate in and witness a psychodrama session, where the theme of the evening was chosen by the work which those present brought with themselves. The London Psychodrama Network would like to link to this experience and invites you to a safe, structured exploration of whatever those present might bring to the group to work with and reflect on. Come and be amazed at how the individual concern can reflect that of the group in many ways, even if some of the group have not met each other before. ‘Envisaging Transitions’ Kirsten Hubert There are transitions at many levels in life, and some of them are hard to pre-sage, envisage or think about. We may be starting a new job, course, life phase, or relationship. This evening will take a look at how we can use psychodramatic methods to help us to think about such transitions. During the year we aim to put on one or two special events with presenters from within the network and further afield. Watch for notice of exciting events coming throughout the year and please check the website! No Meeting – Happy Holidays Open Session Dr Dusan Potkonjak This evening has no pre- arranged theme. We will warm up together and follow the spontaneity and creativity of the group in a safe and supportive way. This will be an open evening in true psychodramatic style.
Open Session Edna Davies and Olivia Lousada This open session invites you to experience the framework of psychodrama in a group and how it moves towards warming up to the present moment as this is the only moment in which we can create change. In so doing it influences the future and how we think about the past. So there is no chosen theme beyond this framework as we will see what we find the group needs to explore at the time. This will increase our spontaneity to the moment and our creativity towards the unexpected. ‘Clean Up Your Relationship’ Dr Maxine Daniels and Kirstin Hubert Have you ever wondered why we keep repeating the same patterns in relationships and the confines of our existence with or without the other? This evening will give you the opportunity to work out those patterns and help you to think about any changes you would like to make in your life by spring cleaning aspect of your life. ‘Sharing Stories with Playback Theatre’ Veronica Needa Sharing stores is, of course, what we do when we work on our issues and personal obstacles in the group context of a psychodrama process. Playback Theatre creates a context where personal stories can be shared in a public space. These stories are volunteered and can be everyday experiences as well as extra- ordinary moments, happy or sad. This evening, we will share stories in this way…through Playback Theatre. Through getting in touch with our natural playfulness, creativity and spontaneity, we will be both tellers and performers under the guidance of Veronica. ‘Luck’ Janine Turkie This workshop will explore our feelings in relation to luck. Do we think of ourselves as lucky or unlucky in life? When do you feel you have been lucky or very unlucky? At times we all feel "If only..." Do you think we have any influence over events which seem to be ‘down to luck’? ‘Spontaneity in Everyday Life!’ Chip Chimera This evening’s psychodramatic explorations will follow the spontaneity of the group. In our approach spontaneity is not impulsiveness or risk taking but an exploration of new and appropriate responses to those old bug-bears, niggles and worries. It is reflection in action. Come and warm up to an evening of connection and reconnection. ‘Not Enough Time’ Richard Oliver If only there was more time available, then we might get everything done without rushing or worrying. During this evening, we will look at what happens when we have too much to do. What do those around us feel about this? What are we doing to ourselves? Arrive at 6.45pm for 7pm...
