"Any truly therapeutic procedure can have for its object no less than the whole of humankind." - J. L. Moreno


Sociodrama addresses group problems and social issues. By moving common concerns into action, group members get a chance to express their thoughts and feelings, gain deeper understanding of their values, and practice new ways of dealing with problems. The adaptability of sociodrama makes it a valuable tool for personal development, education, collective trauma, business, and social justice/community organizing.

This two-day training is designed to offer participants a holistic learning experience that combines sociodramatic theory and practical application, providing participants with a foundation in sociodrama. This training will place a special emphasis on sociodramatic interventions in therapeutic settings. Additionally, applications of adapting sociodramatic interventions to work with specific clinical populations and/or settings will be explored.


Participants can expect an integration of both didactic and experiential learning methods. Sociodramatic vignettes will be demonstrated throughout the training weekend. Participants will have access to multiple roles, including trainee, audience member, auxiliary, and student director.
Previous training in sociodrama or other action methods is not required. All sessions are designed to stand alone so that attendance at all sessions is not required.
