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 is bespoke, with a range of different events that people can choose from and discuss with their primary trainer.  In addition various practitioners 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 2020, Sue is continuing to provide a range of services within Australia and Internationally online.  A new experiential group commencing on the 10th November 2020 is entitled ‘Onscreen’ – Explorations in virtual reality through Psychodrama. Others in this series will be posted soon. Topics include ‘psychodrama and sociometry in one-to-one therapy’, ‘role theory in couple counselling’, ‘coaching as an action method’, and ‘sociometry in the classroom’. 

This year ALL of our courses are online.  A NEW training program is beginning in November for those new to psychodrama. There is also a new series of experiential workshops for individual practitioners and leaders of groups, who are working online (see above for the first in the series).

The 4-Day Annual Intensive Psychodrama Workshop in Melbourne, with the title ‘CREATION’ was held online this year (October 16-19). This workshop was conducted along sociometric lines, by Sue Daniel with several other contributors presenting throughout the sessions; Lethe Gaskin, Jun Maeda, Katrina Gaskin and Meenakshi Kirtane. The 4-Day annual workshop will be held again in October 2021 (Details forthcoming). 

Psychodrama is about mutual relationships and living in the moment.  Making connections through relationship is the catalyst for real change. Our aim is to promote individual and group health in our communities through the spontaneity and creativity of psychodrama.
