....building on the spirit and work of J. L. Moreno and Zerka T. Moreno.
The Moreno Psychodrama Society (MPS) is a body of people working together to bring the psychodramatic method into many areas of our world. MPS is the umbrella organisation for the Psychodrama Institute of Melbourne (PIM), the Psychodrama Institute of Aotearoa (PIA), and the institute, Psychodrama in India; all accredited training bodies that stand for, and promote the development of relationship and community through the unique expression of their members. MPS and the institutes are mutually affiliated with the Australian and Aotearoa Board of Psychodrama (AABP).
The Moreno Psychodrama Society hosts the electronic Theatre of Spontaneity (e-ToS) on the last Sunday evening of every month from 6.00 - 8.30 p.m. ToS is a two-hour event, open to the public, and explores matters of interest in our world, specific topics and the latest innovations in experiential methods. The material comes from the audience. Leaders may include psychodrama practitioners, trainees and overseas guests.
The benefits of MPS membership are many. Firstly, you are a part of a living and thriving community that has spontaneity and creativity at its heart. You will receive two issues of the world's first Psychodrama E-Journal:The Mirror every year. There is an ongoing Blog, showing forthcoming events, photos, art, poetry and the writings of our members and friends. Members and guests are invited to write for the blog thereby contributing to the creation of new ideas and developments in psychodrama.
Psychodramatists and Advanced Trainees are eligible to post links on our site. Membership includes reduced rates into all MPS events, such as the monthly ToS and some PIM and PiA workshops.
MPS has a chapter of MPS in India - MPS (I). For more information contact us.
The Committee: Yelena Ashlapova (Chairperson), Hans Wilgenburg, Lethe Gaskin, Ted Bugarski (Editor of the e-Journal), Gavin O’Loughlin, Vanessa Hutchinson and Sue Daniel (Founder of MPS). This committee, which forms and maintains the group sociometrically, serves the membership by managing the day-to-day affairs of the Society, organising events such as conferences and projects and keeps connected with other psychodrama communities and organisations throughout the world.
