Psychodrama

Psychodrama, an experiential form of therapy, uses guided drama and role playing to work through problems. First developed by Jacob L. Moreno, psychodrama includes elements of theater – such as the use of props – and is often conducted on a stage, or in a space that serves as a stage area. Psychodrama is used in both individual and group therapy settings and can help people gain perspective on emotional concerns, conflicts, or other areas of concern in a safe and supportive environment. Think this approach might be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s psychodrama experts today.

I have have enhanced my work with a number of individual and group drama techniques, especially Forum Theater, in which participants get to generate and try out their own solutions to challenges in a safe setting, before attempting change in the rest of life.
