Action Methods and Sociodrama: what is it?

“With sociodrama, we help a group telling their own story,
better understanding it and, if possible, changing it.”
Ron Wiener

“Show me the question, the situation…!”

“Action Method” and “Sociodrama” are the most common terms used to name the J.L. Moreno’s Method, when it is used for professional development. The Sociodrama mostly focuses on interaction and the development of roles.

Rather than talk about it, show me your question, your situation, your reality or your imagination and I will accompany you towards the change you desire.”

In short, this is the message delivered by the specialist in Action Methods. Through “game” and interaction of roles, this methodology (used with groups, teams or individuals), prefers action and experience to the sole verbal expression in order to achieve the desired change.

Beyond the numerous techniques, one has to facilitate action thanks to the humanistic method of J.L. Moreno.

Main objectives of the Action Method by J.L. Moreno

  • Facilitate through action with method the collective intelligence and exploration of given questions
  • Increase the skills of everyone and all
  • Transform what could have been a simple series of action techniques into an intense, playful, designed and safe process
  • Activate internal and/or external dynamics of a person, a team or a group
  • Facilitate the desired evolution using means related to the personality and situation of each person or of the group

Connect the 6 ways of integration, which are:

Express – Experiment – Exercise – Elaborate – Evaluate – Evolve

The Moreno’s Method facilitate collective intelligence, awareness and therefore the transformation of experiences and knowledge into skills directly applicable in the personal and professional environment.
