Moreno Understanding People: personal and professional development courses, leadership and advanced therapy training programs.
Most of us work with people in one capacity or another. Unfortunately for many of us, it is a struggle. People, along with their often unpredictable behaviour, whether as co-workers, clients, family members, and friends, supply us with many challenges and opportunities. But to meet these challenges and capitalise on the opportunities, having an open but thorough understanding of people, is essential. Easily said, harder to do.
Moreno offers a range of programs focused on your capacity to better understand people, including and most importantly yourself, and to work with them in a variety of creative and practical ways. Our training programs take a unique look at being a leader in a group, whether as the boss, the trainer, the facilitator, the consultant, the therapist, the pastorla carer, or manager. Our programs provide you with real ways to focus on the relationships that any leader must be capable of creating, in order to engage people and their own individual motivations. Our work covers the intricacies of group dynamics, group work, action methods and a range of creative therapeutic tools and the personal challenges that make using them difficult. Through the use of well grounded and theoretically rigorous experiential methods, rather than just good advice, insight, or theories.
Understanding People is key whether you are leading people, living wdirecting people, collaborating with people, motivating people, co-ordinating people, or working with people towards a therapeutic end. Training with Moreno is focused on acquiring the skills necessary to understand people, in all their uniqueness.
The next series of programs we offer are designed as personal development. Personal development programs impact strongly on professional development n a variety of ways. Firstly, though a participant on a personl development group getting to know their own biases, prejudices and patterns. Secondly, through working through these areas in a group with like minded and motivated adult learners and life explorers. Thirdly, by being able to draw on the elarning of others. Lastly, by having the freedom to explore areas of life not so easy to access or work with in the usual flow of day to day life. For a general overview of these types of programs try this page.

He rushes in, late again, eyes red-rimmed,
sits before me. I wait for him to speak.
We are alone. As my client talks,
the room grows dense with his past.
Grandmother enters, her hands snowing
flour and cinnamon, then grandfather smoking
a cigar, snapping his gold watch open and closed,
worrying its gold chain.
My office swells as it gets more crowded.
His mother joins us frowning, holding a crying baby
in pink: knitted sweater, hat, booties. When I
speak, his mother glances behind her at father.
Father’s eyebrows shout disapproval.
More crowded, more crowded.
His wives come in next: first wife in a blue silk suit,
demure except for the glances toward his father,
telling all of us my client was right.
Wife two weeps, leaves a trail of tissues,
stamps her foot, cries no one loves her.
His girlfriend blocks the doorway, arms crossed
below cleavage he paid for.
His children swagger in last—twin sons—
heads shaved, hands in pockets of loose jeans,
biceps’ tattoos matching.
My client says what he has never been able to say.
One by one, he walks each to the door.
