This article is based on an interview of Colin Wrennall conducted by Keith Tudor. We first met as a result of Keith contacting Colin with regard to The Book of Evan, and got to know each other more through some further conversations. The interview itself was conducted in a conversational style; the resulting article is based on a transcription of the interview and subsequent research, and further writing and editing. The article focuses on and covers Colin’s background and work in farming and psychotherapy and, specifically, psychodrama, and discusses the interplay between these two worlds. Following this and drawing on matters arising from the first part of our recorded conversation and subsequent writing, in the second part of the article, we discuss the phenomenon of our ageing practitioner community, sustainable professional development, and succession-planning.
