In my view an encounter, as described in this paper, can provide a corrective emotional experience that assists in social atom repair and contributes to role development. The article also gives an historical background of ‘encounter’ and its place in psychodrama theory and in the canon of psychotherapy. This is followed by an illustration derived from my work with several people, and my reflections on that work. 6 2021-12
