What is Psychodrama?

Psychodrama was created by the late Dr. J.L. Moeno, beginning in Vienna, Austria in 1921 and continuing in the USA. It is the origin of all contemporary role-playing methods and group psychotherapy. Using a wide range of action methods, it helps individual and groups increase positive connections and use their innate spontaneity and creativity to explore problems and issues that are keeping them from living more harmonious and satisfying lives. It has a vast reach of applications, including but not limited to clinical therapy, personal growth, corporates, corporations and institutions, the creative arts and community development. Today it has spread throughout the globe, with active practitioners and trainers in the USA and Canada, Europe, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Latin American, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and India.

Content of the workshop:-

Basics of Psychodrama methodology : doubling, role reversal , mirroring; action sociometry to build connection and group cohesion;

Introduction to role theory of personality, surplus reality and theory of spontaneity–creativity.
