The Toronto Centre for Psychodrama and Sociometry is a not-for-profit educational institution. It is the only educational centre in Ontario providing training in accordance with the guidelines of the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. The Centre offers numerous workshops for both members and non-members, as well as a variety of members-only social and educational events.
History of the TCPS
The Centre was formed in 1976 by a community group with the essential skill and commitment of Ann Hale, formerly Director of Residential Training at the Moreno Institute in New York. A program was established at that time which began to provide quality training in psychodrama, not only for residents of southern Ontario, but for an international community of students. A network of both active and supportive members of the Toronto Centre has also contributed to its character and history.
In August 1982, the active members of the Toronto Centre for Psychodrama and Sociometry began the exciting and challenging process of changing the Centre's structure. Our two aims were to remove the pressure of overwork from a single executive director, and to fully empower the rest of our members to contribute their resources and creativity. Our efforts have come to fruition in the form of a revitalized collective organization which, through consensus, co-operate in all aspects of managing the Centre.
