Social Dreaming Matrix (SDM) is a powerful method, founded by Gordon Lawrence in 1982 to work on the unconscious of the organizations and the social context through the Dream Matrix. Psychodramatic Social Dreaming Matrix (PSDM) was created by Gasseau in 2004 in Eranos - Ascona and was presented  in FEPTO Annual Meetings and in Sociodrama Conference (2009) to work through the dynamic process of the organization by sharing dreams and free associations to dreams in the matrix. Gasseau in 2007 realized that the classic SDM was not enough for psychodramatists who have action hunger and need to enact dreams as Moreno taught us. In PSDM a session of psychodrama on dreams is integrated at the end of classic SDM, where the first and some following dreams are played because a SDM is like a soufflé made from the first and last dream. In the morning, experiential sessions of SDM and PSDM will be presented, where participants will share their dreams about  life, IAGP, and 2nd Psychodrama Conference and associations to grow the social matrix and after the SDM some dreams will be played to understand the collective unconscious.
