Robson, Marlyn Action Insight: The Treatment of Adolescent Sexual Offenders (PDF, 391.4 KB) Journal 7 December 1998 The article describes the use of psychodrama in the treatment of adolescent sexual offenders under the SAFE network. The focus is on the psychodramatic process of self-discovery, termed "action insight" by Jacob L. Moreno. Action insight focuses on the three aspects of a role, namely feeling, thinking, and action, thus helping the young offenders change old behavior patterns through the creation of new experiences. Drama therapy games work well as action warm-ups with the adolescents, enabling them to use their bodies while stimulating their emotions and increasing spontaneity. 7 1998-12
