What is psychodrama?


Psychodrama is a method of group psychotherapy whereby patients act out their personal problems and their life crises by taking roles in spontaneous dramatic performances.

A performance is directed by the therapist (sometimes with the help of a co-therapist) and it looks like a film or a drama in which the patients are the actors.

After the performance, a group discussion led by the therapist aims at giving the patients a better understanding and a greater awareness of the problems presented and possible methods of dealing with them.

Psychodrama can be useful for treatment of anxiety neuroses and affective disorders (such as depression, for instance), and also for family life crisis and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
