The drama is an intermediate internal State, an intermediary between fantasy and reality. The modality is fictional but the experience is very real. The fictional mode allows us to do things that are still outside our reach in real life, such as express dreaded emotions, change patterns of behavior or displaying new traits. Once we have experienced, although in fictional mode, these new experiences can be part of the Repertoire of our real life. (Emunah, 1994, p.27). Without a doubt Jacob Levy Moreno, contributed valuable lessons, therapies for the personal growth, as in the case of your psychodrama, as Wikipedia, reminds us submitted to psychodrama as a new form of psychotherapy that can be widely applied. Psychodrama puts the patient on a scenario, where you can solve their problems with the help of a few therapeutic players.

It is both a method of diagnosis and treatment. Blatner (1988, p. 1) presented so Psychodrama is a method of psychotherapy in which the patients Act relevant events of your life instead of just talking about them. This involves exploring in action, not only the historical events, but what is more important, the dimensions of psychological events not usually addressed in the conventional dramatic representations: not verbalizados thoughts, encounters with those who are not present, representations of fantasies about what others may be feeling or thinking, imagined possible future and many other aspects of the phenomena of the human experience. Although Psychodrama is often used in a group context and can be a very useful method to catalyze the Group process (and, in turn, be catalyzed by group dynamics), it should not be considered as a way of specifically group therapy. It can be used, as happens in France, with several trained co-therapists and one patient. You can also use the psychodrama with families or, even, in a way amended, individual therapies.
