Introduction to Psychodrama
This workshop will be rooted in the philosophy and methodology of J.L. Moreno, founder of psychodrama, sociometry, sociodrama, and sociatry.
During our week together, we’ll use the principles and methods of sociometry to actively engage in the three-fold process of warm-up, action, and sharing (including de-roling). Throughout, we’ll explore the five instruments of psychodrama: director, protagonist, auxiliaries, audience, and stage. We’ll also learn key techniques, such as becoming an auxiliary ego, doubling, role playing, role reversing, and mirroring.
Finally, together we’ll imagine ways psychodrama can be used with various populations. Though there will be didactic and may be some reflective (i.e. written) components to the workshop, primary learning will be experiential and embodied.
