27th FEPTO Annual Meeting
Tallinn, Estonia, 19th – 23rd of May 2019
From Creativity to Functionality.
Prosperous Members in a Flourishing Organization
The topic and the structure of the forthcoming 27th Annual Meeting was the main theme of our recent council meeting in Dave, Belgium. Taking into account the feedback given by our community through the Voices questionnaire in Pravets, Bulgaria we decided to continue working in the same spirit as we did last year. In addition to that, we discussed how we can enhance as an organization, the well being, the “prosperity” according to the definition of Aristotle, of our member/ institutes. We wondered how the training institutes that constitute FEPTO can benefit and improve by the processes of our collectivity, enrich their function and provide an even higher quality of psychodrama training. Therefore, we came up with the following title:
“From Creativity to Functionality: Prosperous Members in a Flourishing Organization”
Last year in Pravets we created small groups based on the different functions of our Federation and we deepened on how we can improve our procedures. This year we plan to continue in the same line of thinking and additionally to have small group work on other topics that will be in the interest of our community members, in relation to the training and other needs of their institutes.
The small groups that we initially have planned were:
- Group on constitution revision and changes
- Group on Psychodrama research
- Group on Psychodrama training
- Group on Psychodrama ethics
- Group on Psychodrama theory and interconnections with other approaches
Three more small groups will take place, after proposals of our community’s members:
- Group on Sociodrama
- Group on Psychodrama with children
- Group on Sexuality related issues in Psychodrama.
We are at your disposal for questions and clarifications. Do not hesitate to contact us, in case you need any assistance.
