Each of the training activities below uses the methodology of J.L. Moreno and contains
- and practice.
In this way, participants can directly transfer the learning into their professional activity… and gradually master them.
Psychodrama in a group setting
On becoming a Facilitator in Psychodrama
Establish on the one hand the four roles of the facilitator by his sine qua non way of being and on the other hand the three essential focal points of his facilitation.
Optimize the 10 functions of Warm-up
Ensure the 10 functions of Warm-up (6 for the participants and 4 for the psychodramatist), pick up the signals of the potential protagonist(s) and facilitate a sociometrically beneficial.
Diagnose by using sociometry
Use the three diagnostic questions with diverse sociometric techniques (e.g. the social atom, sociodramatic constellations etc.) to assess a protagonist’s situation and set it in motion. Stage the sociometry to develop inter-role interactions.
Conjugate the 4 sub-phases of the Action
Ensure step by step the 4 sub-phases of the Action and its 7 stages, from the contract to the anchoring of the achievements; adapt the techniques used at each stage, including for the deroling, before the Sharing phase.
Ensure a Connecting and Constructive Sharing
Develop and use a variety of de-roling techniques and supervise sharing effectively to allow participants to express verbally and/or to show the resonances experienced during psychodrama, from roles and from oneself.
Mastering the process of a whole session
Move with ease from Warm-up to Action, then identify the indicators of passage from one scene to another until the “working through”, and close each of the open loops until the desired present is found.
Get out of "blockages" and/or "vicious circles" by using meta roles
Understand the 8 main functions of meta roles and identify, among the hundreds of possible meta roles, the one that can become a lever for change at a given time in the “working through”.
Psychodrama in one-to-one sessions
Introduce the action in individual sessions
Identify the stakes of the one-to-one setting when using action, facilitate step by step the client/patient in the process of showing rather than talking about, and use creative action techniques that maximize and yet “remain simple”.
Facilitate the use of intermediate objects
Use (on a table or desk) the technique of the intermediate object by means of any object available. Help the client to appropriate and represent through intermediate objects the problem to be explored. Support him/her towards a resolution of the dynamics “opened up” by these incarnated objects.
Maximize the "empty chair" in individual sessions
Allow the client to tame the role reversal and gradually help him/her to take the various roles involved in his/her personal problem(s) in order to unravel their dynamics.
Represent the client's constellation of his roles
Understand the characteristics and dynamics of internalized roles. Use the “social atom of roles in action” to identify and differentiate them. Listening to the client in his complexity and giving, through action, the voice to each of his roles
Provide the meta role of "co-therapist”
Facilitate the client to take on the role of Co-therapist and develop a “non-pressure” adequacy between what he or she is experiencing (inside), the stakes of the situation in which he or she is in, and the options to be considered to resolve it.
