It enhances the individual's ability to develop, to know oneself, to change patterns and behaviors, to learn, and to experience.
It allows the individual to enter a powerful space that operates on multiple dimensions and brings about improvements and better results in a shorter time.
Psychodrama therapy provides an opportunity not only to talk about it but also to act it out.

In the personal process, the therapist is required to engage additional parts of themselves and the protagonist (the client) - parts such as spontaneity, creativity, role-playing, use of props, and more.

Course Structure and Curriculum:
This module is divided into two stages.
Fundamentals: In this stage we will learn the building blocks of psychodrama therapy. We will experience the emotional aspects of working in a group through the use of the psychodramatic space, playback theater, and the inner child model. We will learn and experience how these integrate into the group therapy process and explore group dynamics and their impact on self realization and transformation.
Advanced: We will learn interventions in individual therapy, practice and master the techniques of psychodrama, observe and analyze complex individual therapy processes using psychodrama, and learn the principles of therapy in individual treatment that combine several therapeutic work methodologies.
Methodology 1: Free Flow Dynamics of Psychodrama in a Group
The aim of this methodology is to provide a significant emotional experience of psychodrama as part of group therapy. Participants will personally undergo a psychodrama process within the group, thereby integrating the significance of psychodrama as a therapeutic tool into their emotional body. This stage is essential as psychodrama is a method that extensively works with the emotional and unconscious body, and it is crucial to experience it firsthand in a group setting.
Methodology 2: Learning the Fundamentals of Psychodrama
The aim of this methodology is to teach the working techniques of psychodrama, practice them, and embed them both as knowledge, technique, and emotional experience. Within the foundation stage, we will learn various techniques, including doubling, role reversal and role inversion, sociometry, working with actors, the role of the director and actor, the protagonist as the assisting ego, working with senses, working in the space with different elements in the room, accessing characters within oneself, working with the body in psychodrama, action techniques combined with playback in individual therapy, and creating a psychodramatic therapeutic space.

Methodology 4: Observing and Analyzing Individual Psychodrama Therapy Processes from three perspectives:
Directing - What could have been done differently in terms of directing on the psychodrama stage.
