Infographic: Psychodrama-Mastering your role in your own life’s story

This infographic pulls information from the Current Psychology Journal and the American Society of Group Psychotherapy & Psychodrama to highlight the basic elements and phases of psychodrama therapy and how it can be used in the treatment of drug addiction. It enumerates the elements of psychodrama as: the protagonist, the auxiliary egos, the audience, the stage, and the director. The phases of psychodrama are further defined as warm-up, action, and sharing. The infographic wraps up by presenting bar graphs that show how psychodrama can increase the positive results for heroin addicts in inpatient treatment on the data points of discharge rates, relapse rates, aftercare participation, and attendance in Narcotics Anonymous programs. In each case, experience in psychodrama therapy dramatically improves positive outcomes.
