About OSPIP

 

The Oxford School of Psychodrama and Integrative Psychotherapy (formerly, Oxford Psychodrama Group) was formed in 1979 as a peer support group for people working in Oxford who were interested in psychodrama.

Following the development of the British Psychodrama Association, we became an accredited training organisation in 1989 and have since trained nearly 100 psychodrama psychotherapists.

About Us

We offer training courses in psychodrama psychotherapy. We also run introductory workshops and CPD weekends in a variety of subjects.
