Psychodrama and Dreams, March 2021 (Offline)
Psychodrama is essentially a group action method. This method is a spontaneous and creative method which is used by well trained and certified psychodramatists who enables or facilitates enactment of real-life situations, past incidents or situations or an inner mental process but acting them out in the present time. “You analyze their dreams. I give them the courage to dream again.” These were the words from Jacob L. Moreno to Sigmund Freud, that emphasizes his work on Dreams using Psychodrama. His focus was on helping people analyze their conflicting roles, put the parts together and give them the courage to dream again. Exploration of dreams played a significant part in Moreno’s approach as dreams help us experience new information on many levels: mind, body and psyche. Psychodrama can be a natural method to use with dreams, fantasies and unconscious materials as they involve symbolism and helps in understanding one’s inner processes and inner world. Psychodramatists helps people see their dreams and fantasies, and help them deal with this and make sense out of it. Psychodrama acts as a bridge that connects dreams and outward reality.
