Key features:

Psychodrama psychotherapy engages creative and action-based methods to explore and work with emotional, behavioural, cognitive and relational issues. Psychodrama facilitates the wide range of human communication and goes beyond the paradigm of verbalisation. The father of Psycho- and Sociodrama, Dr J. L. Moreno (1889 – 1974) developed his work from his classical medical qualification and his understanding of engaging theatre as a means of finding out the truth. His rich philosophical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions ground the work within a solid theoretical framework. Amongst his important contributions, Moreno developed developmental and role theories and has not purely provided a method, as it is often incorrectly stated. His work was highly influential throughout the psychological and psychotherapeutic/counselling field. Zerka Moreno (1917 – 2016) further developed the finesse for deep psychological work. Psychodrama is widely used in group- and one-to-one psychotherapy and is known as a potent tool in mental health and prisons as well as in therapeutic community (TC) settings.

What our Students Say

“It achieved a great balance between knowledge of the topic and making this interesting and close to us... the Tutor managed to make {the lecture} understandable to us with day to day examples. At the same time we felt that he was really an expert in the topic. From a HR perspective we were delighted to get so many people participating in the Q&A after the talk, as this is not the usual way our staff behaves.”
