In this webinar, we explore how psychodrama can unlock deep insights and actions in coaching conversations

Psychodrama is referred to as the science of action. By creating a safe space, individuals are invited to explore the truth and their inner experiences using dramatic methods. The forum provides a space for the Coach and Coachee to explore new meanings and perspectives through enacting and embodying the experience. It also provides opportunities for testing out new and futuristic ideas and ways of interaction in a contained space. The Psychodramatic approach helps create a new lens that goes beyond the verbal and the cognitive to tap one’s inherent wisdom and creativity 

Swasthika Ramamurthy and Shabari Madappa will demonstrate various psychodramatic techniques that have the power to unlock thoughts, feelings, and actions in coaching settings. They will be drawing their inspiration from the works of J L Moreno, a 20th-century physician, psychotherapist, and philosopher who is known as the originator of psychodrama, while leveraging their training for several years as Psychodrama Directors and as Executive Coaches

In order to experience this methodology fully during this webinar, we invite 10 volunteers to sign up ahead. As a volunteer, you will be expected to participate actively, be part of demonstrations of techniques, and be invited to bring in real-life topics as part of the psychodrama process. Just bring in your openness, spontaneity, and curiosity and you will enjoy the whole experience!

Please note that volunteers would be required to keep their videos on throughout the session.
