The Psychodrama Institute of Melbourne (PIM) is a world class training organisation in leadership, group psychotherapy, role theory, role training, sociometry and psychodrama. Our training programs include a range of different events from which to choose. Practitioners, trainers and senior trainees are offering individual and small group supervision, personal and professional development courses, psychotherapy, counselling, coaching, mentoring, staff development and organisational consultancy.
The institute has at its core the sociometric principles of the founders of psychodrama, Dr. J. L. Moreno (1889-1974) and Zerka T. Moreno (1917-2016), with an emphasis on two-way mutual relationships, spontaneity and creativity. The Director of PIM is Sue Daniel.
The Program: In 2022, the online program is largely continuing, with a range of activities and events in Australia and Internationally. The experiential group ‘Onscreen’ – Explorations in virtual reality through Psychodrama continues monthly. Other workshops include ‘Stepping into another’s shoes’, a workshop for coaches and teachers; ‘Teens in Action’ – once a month workshop on Saturday mornings, 10-11.30am; ‘New Horizons’, a Personal and Professional development weekend in May, ‘Creative Play’ – an online ‘Psychodrama and Art Therapy’ series in July,
We have 3 ongoing training groups, run on over 4 terms x 6 weekly sessions and a weekend session. Beginning in February, there is the Open training group on Tuesday evenings, and 2 advanced training groups; one on Tuesday mornings and the other on Thursday evenings. Independent psychodrama practitioners and senior trainees, who use specific modalities including psychodrama, CBT, art and yoga in their practice, also offer a variety of services (see Other Services).

Psychodrama is about mutual relationships and living in the moment. Making connections through relationship is the catalyst for real change; through our relationships with people, animals and the physical world. Our aim is to promote individual and group health in our communities through the spontaneity and creativity of sociometry and psychodrama. 2022 is the Year of Imagination, let us flow.
