About AANZPA Canterbury

The AANZPA Branch for the Canterbury/Westland region is  based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

We are a group of Psychodrama trainers, practitioners and trainees. Our branch meets bi-monthly and conducts a variety of social and professional events. In 2020 we hosted the AANZPA annual conference and have done so about every four years since 1990. Since 2013 we have conducted a monthly psychodrama open night known as the Theatre of Spontaneity. Together with the Christchurch Institute for Training in Psychodrama (CITP) we take care of an extensive library of psychodrama books and Journals.

Our branch works in closely with the CITP.  This training institute offers psychodrama training and professional development in Christchurch and Dunedin.

Practitioners and trainees approved by the trainers in the CITP conduct a variety workshops in the Canterbury Westland region. The workshop offerings reviewed and updated monthly.
