Psychodrama,already for several decades , is a proven form of psychotherapy, which combines in its work a group of therapeutic bases, forms of role-play and therapeutic theater.
Humanistic psychodrama as a form of therapy is applicable in special therapeutic groups, but as a method it can also be applied within other groups. So, for example, psychodrama methods can be used in inpatient facilities, shelters, therapeutic societies and in special outpatient groups of patients. Humanistic psychodrama is popular while working in children's therapy, gerontotherapy and therapy for the treatment of addictions.
Participants in the psychodrama group, together with the host of the psychodramatic session, create a therapeutic situation in which the protagonist is given a wide space for action. In a psychodramatic game, the protagonist can re-shape his current situation with the group and change it in a way that he would like it to. If a balance is reached between the feelings of the participants in the session and the feelings of the protagonist, spontaneity arises. With the help of this spontaneity, a person can change his social world.Humanistic psychiatry is a type of form of therapy used in specific therapeutic groups, but not as a method, it can be applied and interacting with another group. Similarly, psychodramatic methods can be used in hospital institutions, priyutahs, therapeutic societies and in specific outpatient groups. The humanistic psychodrama was popular at work in childhood therapy, gerontotherapy and therapies at the time of adolescence.
The members of the psychodramatic group together with the next psychodramatic session are preparing a therapeutic situational, which is presented to the protagonist for a broad space of action. In a psychodramatic game, the protagonist can now formulate his own current situational relationship with the group and make it look as though he had come to this end. If the balance is felt by the feelings of the members of the session and the senses of the protagonist, they will be spontaneous. With the help of this spontaneity of humanity, it can change its social world.
