The drama of improvisation - Shane O'Brien and Robin Shohet
Improvisation and drama provides a glorious insight into how we interact with the world. It involves trust and our ability to let go of our own agendas. To improvise, we need to be totally in the moment - or it falls flat. Learning to comfortably co-create together helps to get the best out of each other. It taps into parts of ourselves that are underused both in our work and our lives. When improvising, we are confronted with our willingness to risk. There is no safety until you realize that the need for safety is what is getting in the way. How can the skills of improvisation translate into therapy and supervision? How can it not!
Shane O’Brien is a therapist and supervisor and was an actor and singer for many years. Recognizing the need for unity in diversity, he has been involved in the fields of personal development and community development for over 25 years.
Robin Shohet has been supervising since 1977. He has a practice in London and Findhorn, Scotland and specializes in group supervision. He is co-author with Peter Hawkins of “Supervision in the Helping Professions” and editor of “Passionate Supervision” and “Supervision as Transformation.”
