9th INTERNATIONAL SPRING ACADEMY 2018 (ISA)

Transcultural and Transgenerational studies in groups with Sociodrama and Psychodrama

Exploring Internal and External Boundaries

in Groups and Society

24. 05. – 27. 05. 2018

Hotel Maestral / Novigrad (Istria, Croatia)

The international spring academy focuses on sociodrama and resource based psychodrama used in case of short-term interventions like in crisis, for working in an open space, for teaching, counselling, psycho-education, and in workshops. Working with groups in various fields, professionals have to handle conflicts caused by real and imagined differences between cultures, generations, religions and ideologies. Sociodrama is a group-centred approach dealing with inter-group relations and collective ideologies. It puts an eye on collective factors and provides techniques to work successfully even in large groups.

Starting ideas

During the Annual meeting of the European Federation of Psychodrama Training Organisations 2009 representatives discussed the possibility of building up a network between universities and private training institutes in order to use the strengths of each partner. An International summer academy was the first step that was taken on this way. Trainers and trainees of psychodrama and students who were interested in the method should meet to work on a certain topic and learn with the help of the psychodramatic and sociodramatic method.

The aspect of transcultural encounters and their development during the meeting should be focused first. The 7th spring academy now is organized by the representatives of the participating Universities.

The network of Universities and private institutes which offers a psychodrama training or courses should enhance the quality of training and the reflection on action methods in general. International cooperation and a stronger scientific orientation are intended.

Goals

Intercultural exchange, research in action, training in psychodrama and sociodrama:
Students of different countries study in action their personal change regarding their relationship with foreign and unknown people by working with sociodramatic methods in two group settings (large and small group).

Participants

10-20 students of each university and institute are invited to participate. They get tasks according to their training level.

Method

Psychodrama, Sociometry and Sociodrama
