Our specialised trainings are recognised by the Swiss Confederation as well as the FEPTO (European Federation of Psychodrama and Training Organisations).
Combining inputs from J.L. Moreno and Carl R. Rogers, the Institute aims to train the students in the specific modalities (instruments, phases, techniques, etc.) of Humanistic Psychodrama.
The students will discover how to facilitate a person’s past, present and anticipated future experience and how the enactment allows treatment and the enabling of desired changes by mobilising the body as well as the psyche.
This is achieved by the externalisation in a safe environment of the internal mental process of a person.
“Show me what happened !”
J.L. Moreno, founder of Psychodrama, considered verbal and non-verbal action to be the royal path to the psyche and its activation. In his opinion, words are not enough and, on their own, can be misleading. For this reason, Moreno created a scientific way to explore and put into motion the psyche by using a method of action and interaction: psychotherapy through psychodrama.
In fact, “showing” instead of “talking about” is the main mode of exploration and development for the patient. Combining the Person-centred Approach and the Morenian Psychodrama, the humanistic psychodrama is a method using the enacting, deepening and the (re)activating of the psyche through the internal and external complexity of real, fictional and semi-fictional situations.

The reality of the patient is staged in order to
explore, get awarenesses, activate internal change and adjust attitudes and social behaviors, and
redevelop spontaneity and creativity, which Moreno considers the two pillars of health.
Psychotherapy by humanistic psychograma group
Since the 1930s, the use of psychodrama was developped in psychotherapy and psychiatry all over the world: in Europe (www.fepto.com), as well as in the USA, South America, Australia and Asia (www.iagp.com).
Use of Psychodrama
The Psychodrama can be applied
with adults or children
in individual, couple or group consultations
in private practice or institutions
in order to
diagnose, evaluate a situation in its complexity and elaborate a plan for treatment
coach through secure and efficient enactment
allow a creative dynamic of profound change
facilitate the anchoring in our resources while working on the difficulties
achieving relief and “close” the past
activate a present focused on the desired future: the improvement of health

In other words, the humanistic psychodrama allows successful psychotherapeutic treatment, as to the nosography of patients, in different therapeutic environments in an autonomous and economic way.
