Psychodrama therapy as a therapeutic and active form of treatment that uses role playing and drama to communicate with the client and work through various issues.
Developed by Dr Moreno, psychodrama therapy can be used on a one to one basis or for groups of people. When you take part in psychodrama therapy, your counsellor will ask you to re-enact certain scenes or experiences that are bothering you, guiding you as you do so.
These will vary according to your condition but may refer to past trauma, future events that you are worried about or situations that fill you with apprehension and worry. If this is done as part of a group then others can fill the roles of key people in your past or future, enabling you to bring to the surface any worries buried deep within your subconscious.
Psychodrama therapists use this type of drama to provide them with insight into your particular problems, enabling them to work with you to produce new coping skills and behaviour. A lot of the time, a psychodrama director will be involved who will coach you as the drama unfolds.
Psychodrama therapy can be a very powerful therapy and is very different to the traditional ‘talk’ therapy. You may be recommended to take part in psychodrama therapy if you are having problems with relationships, loss, self-esteem and negative thinking, to name but a few.
If you are struggling with addictions, past trauma, eating disorders or any type of stress or even phobias, psychodrama therapy may be recommended.
