What is Psychodrama?
Conceived by Jacob L Moreno, Psychodrama employs guided dramatic action to examine problems or issues raised by an individual. Using experiential methods, sociometry, role theory, and group dynamics, Psychodrama facilitates insight, personal growth, and integration on cognitive, affective, and behavioral levels. It clarifies issues, increases physical and emotional well-being, enhances learning and helps develop new skills.
Who is Psychodrama for?
Psychodrama is for everyone and anyone who would like to experience the spontaneity and ‘magic’ of working with action methods. Whether your focus is personal, professional, therapy or training, if you’re interested in the creative exploration of yourself using action as well as words, then you will value and enjoy the personal liberation, self-expression and insights that it elicits.
