Psychodrama
Does drama come naturally to you? Perhaps you thrive on theatrics? Get ready for your close-up because psychodrama may be just what you need. In this performance arts practice conceived by Dr. Jacob L. Moreno, you'll act out your problems, issues, concerns on an actual stage to reach a greater sense of self-awareness and understanding.

In psychodrama, the therapist plays the role of the director. The patient, or protagonist, and other group members, who are assigned supporting roles, then act out scenes provided by the therapist to better understand the patient's behaviors in a safe and supportive environment.
