Psychodrama is the drama of the soul; it is the theatre of truth. It is a general term that refers to any approach that expresses the philosophy and methods developed by Dr J.L. Moreno. Thus the term psychodrama includes the concepts of spontaneity, creativity, role creation, role system, social and cultural atom, surplus reality, social atom repair, and the specific psychodramatic techniques of self-presentation, mirroring, doubling, role reversal, concretisation, maximisation and future projection.
The psychodramatic method is based on the idea of highly motivated human beings acting on the aspirations and deepest concerns of the society or subculture or small group in which they live.
