Sociodrama Workshop in Birmingham, 17-18 November 2018
Hosted by the Birmingham Institute for Psychodrama
Description and Booking
When faced with what appears to be an unending stream of events, tasks or problems that threaten to defeat us, we forget that everything that we need is in the room. We don’t know it, can’t see it at that point. Unsatisfactory compromise doesn’t address the challenges that we are facing.
When we gather and marshal collective wisdom, we can use Sociodrama to help us understand other tribes, perspectives, soften hard feelings and see things in new ways. Sourcing trust and resilience, we can create better options for the present and future, giving us that most rebellious of feelings – hope.
