The main goal of this workshop is to discuss the technical issues that arise in relation to bipersonal psychodrama, showing the viability and usefulness of this therapeutic modality. I will describe my way of working in one-on-one psychodrama, starting with the initial interviews, going through the client's warm-up, the director's warm-up, setting up the initial scene, dramatizing the initial scene, dramatizing childhood scenes triggered by the association with the opening scene and scenes of repairing childhood wounds.
Methodology – I will use a mix of teaching techniques in this workshop and will start by explaining the theory
Then, I will help the participants to practice the classical bipersonal techniques in pairs (a director and a client) and they will have the opportunity to bring their doubts to the large group.
Then, I will ask participants to bring real situations from their own clinical work and again, in pairs (a client and a therapist), to use my explanation in setting up the scene, dramatizing and using the mirror technique to pinpoint where to go next.
Briefly I will describe the other possibilities to the scenes like: using internal psychodrama, psychodrama with images, how to use the “Surplus reality”, psychodrama with dreams and so on.
