Introductory evenings
Wednesdays 16 November 2016, 17 May 2017
8:15-9:45pm £10

I will be giving a picture of what happens during a psychodrama session by means of several short exercises. Between these I will focus on the special possibilities for personal development this medium offers. Besides any questions you may bring this introduction should answer some typically asked; such as what does it mean to play a role given that acting skills are unnecessary? For people considering joining the weekend group, this evening will set the scene. Advance booking required – see above.
