Working with the Ladder of Inference: a Psychodramatists Guide

Abstract: This paper sets out a simple yet profound model that suggests our actions are determined via a causal loop of inference based on minimal or even absent data (Dick & Dalmau 2001, Argyris 1990, Vickers 1995, Senge et al 1994). It shows how we make snap judgments, responses and reactions. The author has found this model enormously useful as a psychodrama practitioner, adult educator and trainer. The model can be used in groups and it assists in creating fresh perspectives. This is a practitioner's paper designed for practitioners.
