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, we are continuing with our online program, with a range of activities and events in Australia and Internationally. The institute holds an Open Night for trainees, practitioners, invited guests and those interested in psychodrama, on Friday 18 February 2022. All enquiries: (+61) 0410 536 791
During 2022, we have three ongoing training groups, which are run over 4 terms: 6 x 2 hour weekly sessions and one afternoon (a 3 hour session on either a Saturday or Sunday) per term. Our Open Training Group, for new, intermediate and advanced trainees, begins on Tuesday evenings (22/2) and two advanced training groups begin on Tuesday mornings (22/2) and Thursday evenings (24/2).
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. The 4-Day International Psychodrama Intensive, ‘Living in the Here and Now’ is going to be online from 14-17 October 2022, unless it is safe and comfortable enough to hold a retreat. Updates are posted regularly on the Blog and this website.
The experiential group ‘Onscreen’ – Explorations in virtual reality through Psychodrama continues monthly. Independent psychodrama practitioners and senior trainees, who use psychodrama with other modalities also offer workshops and individual sessions (see Other Services).

Psychodrama is about mutual relationships and living in the moment (the ‘here and now’). 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 and create anew in our work and in our day-to-day life.
