5/6/2008 —

"Using Psychodramatic Methods to Enhance Relationships: An Introductory Workshop" is the topic of a free program set for 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center.   The workshop is sponsored by Penn State York's Community and University Partnership (CUP) and features Baljit Kaur, who is in her fourth year of psychodrama training at Christchurch Institute in Psychodrama in New Zealand. Kaur is a senior lecturer at University of Canterbury in New Zealand. CUP's workshops are designed for educators, human service providers and other professionals who work with children, youth and families. 

The workshop will help participants to learn more about psychodrama as an effective method to explore life experiences and to develop creative ways of living, through dramatic group or individual, action. In this session participants will be invited to participate in small vignettes or role-plays based on their experiences. There is no expectation of prior knowledge of psychodrama. Some of the basic ideas and concepts underlying psychodrama will become clear in the course of the workshop through example and action. 

This workshop is open to the public but space is limited. To register or for more information, contact Beth Gill-MacDonald at (717) 771-4047 or bxg5@psu.edu.

The Community and University Partnership (CUP) is a collaboration between Penn State York and area human service, educational and community organizations. The partnership seeks to link the resources of both the University and the community to address critical issues facing children, youth and families. The mission of CUP is to promote healthy children, youth and family outcomes through university and community collaborations that are research-based and foster mutual learning and benefit to all partners.
