Hello! Our conference theme next April 11 – 14, 2013, for the ASGPP (USA) conference is about the global impact of action approaches. In that vein, we would love to have photographs (especially close-ups of trainers), captions, names associated with the pictures, and news about how psychodramatic methods are being used in your country! Please also plan to come to the conference: www.asgpp.org to find out more.
Some further requests optional:
Possible questions as warm-ups:
1. How many psychodrama training programs are there in your country?
Who are four of the most experienced and dedicated trainers?
Can we get photos of you or any of them?
2. How many people are very interested in psychodrama, with more than 100 hours of workshops or training?
(Not counting all those who take brief courses or workshops and then move on.)
3. Please feel free to translate into your country’s language any of the papers on psychodrama, sociodrama, or sociometry I have on my website -- just say on the translations (Originally in English by Adam Blatner, M.D., TEP, on (and name of webpage) )
4. What is your web site? Is there anything in English that people can read there?
5. I'll put together a report on my International Psychodrama Newsletter on my website.
6. Also, perhaps a history of psychodrama in your country, when it began, who were the pioneers.
Second, have any books or articles on psychodrama been written by people you know and are they already on the International Psychodrama Bibliography or perhaps you could pass them along to me and I'll send them to Michael Wieser.
7. Did any of your members attend the IAGP Conference in Cartagena, Colombia, recently?
8. Do you know the email addresses of any psychodrama institutes in nearby countries? Names of trainers?
Also, I noticed that if I send this to iagp-psychodrama[at]yahoogroups[dot]com; it gets rejected. What are these different listserves about again. I think Discuss makes it more to us... yes? Warmly, Adam
Warmly, Adam Blatner
