Sociodrama is a natural, powerful and playful method for helping children develop problem solving skills and try out new behaviors and roles. It helps children
learn how to self-regulate and develop impulse control as well as to safely and appropriately express strong feelings.Sociodrama Psychodrama Rebecca Walters Singapore Buy Tickets

The Wonder of Spontaneity

The Wonder of Spontaneity

For those of us who experience life as monotonous and rather soul-sucking there’s good news!

Through accessing your spontaneity and creativity you can feel ALIVE.

Our psychodrama and sociodrama workshops assist the return of playfulness and fun.

One of the participants, Geralidine, commented “In my first workshop, I didn’t know what was going on, but the positive energy drew me in and soon I was participating in a positive way, I lead workshops today to help others find their inner visionary self-lover. This theatre of spontaneity is both rejuvenating and healing”
