We are a non-profit organisation with headquarters in Berlin. We were founded in 1989 with the aim of spreading Psychodrama throughout Europe, including building connections abroad and to develop the use of Psychodrama and Sociometry in different fields such as psychotherapy, education, organisational development, consultation and theatre.

To realise this, training in Psychodrama and Sociometry is promoted in different countries, projects are organised and the associations put on conferences together.

16th Int. Conference “Riding the Waves”

22nd until 24nd of September 2023 in Berlin, Germany


Dear colleagues, members and participants, 

the waves are too high, the storm too unpredictable – we are retreating back to the land and waiting out the stormy times! 

Due to the new increases in the incidence of corona in many countries in Europe and beyond and the associated uncertainty about new entry and exit regulations and the associated testing and/or quarantine requirements, it is with a heavy heart that we have decided not to hold our international psychodrama conference in Presence this year. 

Your personal costs, which could arise from possibly short-term testing or quarantine requirements, cannot be calculated with certainty and at the same time our conference would take place under distance and masking rules, as this is still the requirement for Germany and – by now – would also exclude dancing and singing.

We are going back to the land, but that certainly doesn’t mean we won’t go back to the waves. In order to keep our biennial rhythm, which is tied to our biennial general assembly, we have already set a new date.

The next International Psychodrama Conference will take place in two years from 22 to 24 of September 2023! 

Instead of the three-day conference, a one-day online “un-conference” will take place on Saturday, 25th of September from 10:00 am to 01:00 pm and 03:00 pm to 06:00 pm (CET).

Join and register here to our one-day online “Un-Conference”! And find more on Dates&Events
