Professional Applications Workshop

April 9th 2016 was the first of our Professional Development Gatherings for 2016. 

In the spirit of learning more about each other and about how we each take Moreno's method out into our world, we invited four members of the NSWACT community to reveal, in action, how they apply the psychodramatic method in a variety of work contexts. 

Masterfully MC'd by Penny Beran, we heard from Lynley McNab - school psychologist, Lynne Burchmore - trainer and clinical supervisor, Jenny Postlethwaite - an executive coach and organisational consultant and Willi Boettcher, who runs groups for mental health clients.

It was a really successful day - a rich, full and meaningful day with experience, information and validation. And lots of fun!!

We had a great turn up - 15 people in total - including Michelle from the current training group at Psychodrama Australia Sydney Campus and 3 folks - Sharon, Ann and Vicky who we haven't seen in a while. The diversity of attendees and the chance to get reacquainted with some old faces added to the delight of the day.
