Psychodrama - this is both a psychotherapeutic technique and a psychological counseling mechanism developed by J. Moreno. In classical psychodrama, the mechanism of dramatic improvisation is used to study the internal life of the subject. The work of individuals who complete their own actions with the help of theatricalization, dramatic self-expression and role-playing games is the basis of the psychodrama method.
Psychodrama as a method of psychotherapy is used as an individual practice (monodrama) and in group action. The psychodrama technique involves the use of verbal communication and non-verbal interaction. A session is based on playing a few scenes, which can depict, for example, client memories of some past events, some unfinished situations, his dreams or fantasies, etc. Such scenes can be either close to reality or can bring out internal processes of the psyche. With the help of stage play of his own moments of life, the subject gets the opportunity to acquire abilities that will be useful to him in the future.
