Empowerment and Resilience: Sosiodrama: Creating spontaneity in traumatised communities
Expressive Arts in Transition (EXIT) is a group intervention developed for stabilizing people who live under extreme stress and/or have survived human or nature induced trauma. EXIT focuses on enhancing movement, imagination, engagement, connection, here and now, safety and responsibility. Sosiodrama’s focus is on a common theme concerning the whole community.
Anxiety and fear are symptoms survivors of trauma often experience. Fear is something you feel when you are threatened, while anxiety is anticipating that something traumatic will happen again. Both anxiety and fear have the same physiological response in the body. The opposite of anxiety is spontaneity. Using mirroring in sosiodrama is a form of “role reversal”. All participants become directors. EXIT will be introduced as a form of sosiodrama.
