Beyond Psychodrama as “Therapy”

Originally posted on December 30, 2017

Many aspects grow out of psychodrama—not just psychodrama as “therapy.” That arena of application—therapy– dominates the field, though; obscures it! Instead, we should notice the many applications of the method beyond psychotherapy, what I choose to call Action Explorations!

However, Moreno’s creations cross field boundaries, so that, for example, “Sociodrama” is now being offered by a drama therapist. Thus, Moreno’s works cross disciplinary borders, have applications in many areas, and reach over to include various aspects of drama therapy, applied improvisation, drama in education, other arenas.

My current project involves addressing this change-over beyond psychodrama as psychotherapy and toward action explorations as simulations for cooperative learning programs as the next step in education.
