Workshop: Psychodrama

Join psychodramatist Mike Chase for a workshop exploring practices used in his work at HMP Grendon, Europe’s only wholly therapeutic prison. Participants are introduced to core concepts used in UK prisons such as psychodrama and mask work through practical exercises. This event is aimed at students of drama, art therapy and/or those with an interest in working in this field.

Mike Chase is the Artistic Director of Mike Chase Masks and a psychodrama psychotherapist working as the clinical lead on A wing at HMP Grendon. Between 1981 and 1996 Chase trained in Italy, England and Bali. He taught and directed physical theatre, mime and mask at Arts Educational Drama Department for ten years while acting with various theatre companies. The Mask Studio was established in the mid-1990s and developed masks for training, education, performance and therapy where Chase taught in these fields internationally for 25 years. He is a faculty member running experiential seminars in mental health.

This workshop is part of Art at HMP Grendon and supported by the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.
