Systemic-Scenic Action Methods in group leading and counseling – Special focus on transgenerational + constellation work
Postgraduate Psychodrama Training – Berlin, 2023 – 2024
Degree: Psychodrama Practitioner (DFP/PAfE/FEPTO)
Stagework like Psychodrama is widely used by counselors, trainers, psychologists, therapists, HR-experts, pedagogues, physicians, ministers, actors, mediators … all over the world, unique in diversity and effectiveness. With its huge range of action-oriented methods it is likely to be the most important hidden ingredient not only of various therapeutic approaches but also of all modern so-called „social“ media.
It is also the „first systemic method“ as it has a picture of human beings as huge and highly complex clusters of diverse roles – inner roles and those more outward. Picture of the inner dialogues, inner teams, inner orders all find their primal sources in the Morenian theories. This makes it easy to create constellations and to work with deep issues lively and light to the welfare of clients, families, organisations and even with single persons („Monodrama“).
The inventor of the trias of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group therapy, J.R. Moreno (1889-1974), also called „the impromptu man“, wanted to be remembered as „the man who brought joy and laughter into psychiatry“. He was the first in exploring and elaborating interindividual as well as social encounter and all kinds of social processes.

Scene-based, action-oriented and suited for partially nonverbal work, our Psychodrama training prepares perfectly for all fields which need mindfulness, recognition and appreciation of the traces of family history. All people, irrespective of their social or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion or belief, age, physical or psychological abilities or other characteristics, have to find ways of coping with those traces. And all families are affected by their bigger social environment. Social events, changes, breakthroughs impact on them just as much as catastrophies, wars, upheavals … . In our training we integrate approaches to those often unconscious transgenerational issues which can help to overcome, to cope, to find easier ways of co-existance and collaboration.
Berlin seems the perfect place in Germany and one of the best in Europe to establish a training which promotes and prepares for transgenerational work in every thinkable professional application.
The shared language of the training will be English. Encouraging all people who didn’t have the opportunity to learn the language in school we prefer to call it „broken english“ (only few things are so discouraging like 100% perfection). If you hesitate, call us and see if our speech level meets yours.
