OPEN PSYCHODRAMA SESSIONS:
The Psychodrama OPEN SESSION is aimed at introducing people to Psychodrama. It is instructional, experiential and low key - a great way to experience the greatness of Psychodrama within a safe setting. Though therapeutic value is often felt from the experience, Open Sessions are not psychotherapy sessions and the director is not present in the role of psychotherapist. The purpose of the Open Session is for participants to experience the Psychodramatic method as an introduction. There is time for questions. All experience levels are welcome.
