The Heart of Moreno ' s Legacy II: Life-sustaining Actions during Political Unre
The Heart of Moreno ' s Legacy II: Life-sustaining Choices during Political Unrest 
April 15, 3pm -April 18, 4pm, just prior to ASGPP Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX

Ann E. Hale, MA, TEP and Donna Little, MSW, TEP will facilitate three gatherings in 2018 and 2019 to explore ways the full repertoire of Psychodrama and Sociometry can be directed toward solutions to bring opposing groups together. Rather than title each event separately we will combine the following : (1) Who Shall Survive?You, and all the others; (2) The nature of our past successes on which we'll build new roles and new territory; (3) Strengthen and support one another as we create potent solutions to bring to the world. The content of these gatherings will emerge from the leaders intentions and abilities, the participants enthusiasm for various target groups and issues, and the settings we hope to develop connections with. You may enroll for only one gathering. Second and third have not yet been scheduled. To enroll online see further.

THIS WORKSHOP IS CONFIRMED TO TAKE PLACE. There is space for one more..  Let us know if you want to be considered in case of a cancellation.


Diana Jones, Sociometrist &AANZPA trainer launches book in NYC
Leadership Material, How Personal Experience Shapes Executive Presence, NY, Nicholas Brealey, 2017 was launched at a book signing in New York at Barnes and Noble, May 8, following her attendance and presentation at the Annual Meeting of ASGPP in Clearwater,  FL May 4-7. Later Diana will launch her book in Wellington, New Zealand. Diana has had over thirty year of observing teams and executives fail while following tips from a myriad of self help articles and journals. Her approach has been to be truthful about what works and what does not. For instance,  feedback is not helpful. She offers the executive a bridge from his or her best practice with a real connection to the situation or person. Suggestions are grounded in the managers experience and recalled to seal a connection. Gentle questioning, "Do you want them to share with you why they are amused when you came in late?"  Facing realities straight on gives a person a push toward what they have wanted all along. A remarkable read with enduring qualities. We'll done, Diana. Available at a variety of booksellers and Amazon. Check out her website. Go to the links section above and select her Organizational Development site.

The Sociometric Cycle
The sociometric cycle is a model which may be used by a group or the group's leaders to track the position the various members of a group are holding in a given moment in relation to a task or an event. This position is one held individually and also impacts the group members. The model was developed in 1986 by Ann E. Hale. It was developed within the context of John Mosher's The Healing Circle: Myths, Ritual and Therapy (1985).  In the 28 years of its existence practitioners of psychodrama and sociometry have developed the model and created many useful and exciting ways to use it in action,  for journaling, for processing, etc.  

The Sociometric cycle is described in Ann Hale's most recent book Three Cyclical Models which Enhance Consciousness of Interpersonal Connection (2012).


Three Cyclical Models by Ann E. Hale available now
Ann Hale's new monograph, Three Cyclical Models which Enhance Consciousness of Interpersonal Connection is now available for sale.  The monograph (57 pages) includes the origins, design, and ways each cycle may be used in action. The three cycles are: The sociometric cycle, the harmonic-conflictual cycle and the interpersonal neurobiology cycle. The Appendices include signage for use in action explorations of each cycle; a section on the three cycles and Moreno's Canon of Creativity; a section on the holographic nature of the cycles, and an update on consciousness related to research on the brain.
