Event description


Sociodrama & Story in Childrens Groups

A group session for adults taught by Rebecca Walters of the Hunter Valley Psychodrama Institute  and organised by Sharmini Winslow - Psychodrama Singapore - Be the Change

What is Sociodrama?

Sociodrama is a natural, powerful and playful method for helping children develop problem solving skills and try out new behaviors and roles.

It helps children learn how to self-regulate and develop impulse control as well as to safely and appropriately express strong feelings. Sociodrama and story can be used to address social issues that may arise in the classroom and on the playground such as fighting, bullying and intolerance. They can also be used to address the sorts of issues that commonly are addressed in counseling and therapy groups, such as dealing with abusive siblings, the death or divorce of parents, etc.
