Psychodrama is a form of group therapy which
was developed in the early part of the twentieth century by J L Moreno by
working with interpersonal relationships with drama.
JL Moreno was one of the major founders of what is now
called Group Therapy.
By working with roll play the underlying issues can be
bought to the surface. Within the group the therapist (director) will encourage
the playing out of pre arranged rolls.
For example one member may feel difficult around accepting
gifts which bring up feelings of anger. This group member may recall a
past incident which some of the group will then "play out".
Members of the group may pay out a members dream, part of a life story or
past traumatic event.
By working with this within the group, other outcomes
can be explored and the true root of the anger may be revealed.
Each member of the group will have the opportunity to
work through "re-enacting" to explore emotional difficulty
within a safe and controlled group environment with the object of
providing insight and emotional relief.
