As one of the core therapies utilized in the process of healing trauma and other painful experiences, psychodrama is a vital modality to the program offerings at Safe Harbor. The technique of psychodrama is utilized in a group setting. In addition to participating in their own process, psychodrama offers clients the opportunity to be an integral part of supporting others in their healing process. Exchanges take place that allow an individual to see a new perspective on a situation. Obstacles to recovery are identified. Clients are able to release much of the energy and pain they hold in connection to trauma or other painful memories. In doing so, individuals begin to experience healing and understanding. Shame begins to transform into self-acceptance.
By offering support to their peers during the therapeutic process clients will begin to feel necessary to the whole. They will re-learn empathy and develop deep meaningful relationships based on trust and honesty. Sociometry, role-playing and props are common in the psychodrama setting.
