What is Psychodrama?
Developed by Jacob L. Moreno, MD, psychodrama uses guided dramatic action to examine problems or issues raised in group or individual psychotherapy and counseling. It is useful in helping the individual to express unexpressed feelings and to find and practice new ways to change unsatisfying situations in life. Psychodrama is used to explore through action the worlds in which we live, both internal and external. It allows for the safe expression of strong feelings, a wider perspective on individual and social problems and an opportunity to try out desired behaviors.
