PSYCHODRAMA IN ESTONIA

The history of Psychodrama in Estonia goes back to 1960’s when in the university city Tartu intellectual people gathered into slaongs to read Moreno and practice directing psychodrama. But the beginning of professional development of psychodrama we can consider from 1991 when Estonian Psychodrama Association was founded. During the first independence days in early 90’s several psychodrama trainers, mostly from Finland and Sweden hold courses and seminars in Estonia.

In 1995 two training groups started, one in Tartu and one in Tallinn. Till nowadays both Tallinn and Tartu Psychodrama Institutes offer trainings in group-leader, psychodrama director/certified practitioner CP and trainer TEP level. Both institutes are members of Nordic Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group psychotherapy and members of FEPTO. Psychodrama is quite well known in Estonia as an effective method in educational, social and organisational filed. We have good cooperation with Tallinn University teaching group-leading  and action methods to mentors and young teachers.
