PSYCHODRAMA is a theurapeutic and educational practice that uses methods of enactment, sociometry, group dynamics, role theory and social systems theory. Patients/clients enact their complex instead of only talking about them. All action takes place in the here and now. Through action methods, psychodrama allows patients/clients to come to resolution. This powerful approach is tailored to those who seek to reach a higher level of consciousness and greater peace of mind.
The basic difference between this form of therapy and the primarily verbal modalities is that psychodrama both encourages and provides a direct vehicle through which the individual actually re-experiences the central issues of his or her life. The person chosen as protagonist is again in the midst of his or her emotional reality as if for the first time.
It is here that the true power of psychodrama lies. The realizations that can take place in the psyhodramatic experience can be so immediate, so vivid, so intense as to make a positive lasting impact. A crucial dimension of the experience is that as the psychodramas are enacted, the group is evolving a life of its own. The intimacy and trust which develop, in turn provide a secure context in which further explorations of personal feelings are possible.
Goals of Psychodrama:
* To increase spontaneity and creativity.
