“A child is very serious when playing“ J. Rousseau

The psychodramatic therapy of children differs profoundly from treating adults with this method and demands a lot of the psychodrama therapist. Children communicate differently from grown-ups. Playing is their instrument of expressing their inner world and they use symbols to do so. One can say: Playing is their „royal way“ to express the unconscious. They search for their possibilities by „Doing and Acting“. They test their inner images by acting it out and bringing it on the appropriate stage.
Children play, choose subjects, places and roles. That is the way they express themselves, develop and have fun. Presumably this is the origin of the psychodramatic therapy. Jacob L. Moreno based his psychodramatic work on this kind of play and included the basic steps and elements of the human development.
Children are characterized by an outstanding creativity. They can change sorrowful situations into a game with symbols and find solutions for their own conflicts. Constitutive psychodramatic fundamental techniques are adopted by the vivid, childish play. Children psychodrama supports the self-development and the advancement of children in a special way.
Concept

The course teaches the basics of this symbolic play with children in theory and practice, corresponding psychodramatic techniques for action and the appropriate use of psychodramatic options for intervention in both group and individual therapy.

Target Group

Professionals who work with children educationally and / or therapeutically such as child and adolescent psychotherapists, physicians, psychologists, mental health and social workers, teachers, and educators.
