Role-Reversal: Personal and Political Implications

Abstract: The paper explores the personal, social, and political implications of the psychodrama technique known as role reversal. The issue is discussed with reference to a role reversal vignette between a father and daughter that occurred in a personal development group for women. Several ideas relevant to the analysis of the relationship between the two protagonists in a role reversal are examined. The similarities between French feminist Julia Kristeva's three stages of the feminist struggle for equality and J. L. Moreno's stages of personality development are also discussed.
