Sociodrama Books:

Antonina GarciaSociodrama: Who's in Your Shoes? (Second Edition)
In its fully revised second edition, this book is devoted solely to the study of sociodrama, a group learning process that provides practice in solving problems of human relations through action while uncovering the commonalities among people, allowing the thoughts, feelings, and hopes of all who participate to rise to the surface. This insightful guide helps participants in group work to come to a new understanding about themselves, each other, and the world at large by providing a living laboratory for practicing new and more satisfying ways to approach problems, clarify values, express feelings, and practice new behaviors. The theoretical and practical guidance offered in this book will help management and staff trainers, educators, psychotherapists, sociologists, theatre artists, pastoral counselors, and others in or planning on joining the help professions to provide a vital modality for energizing even the most passive groups.

Peter Felix KellermanSociodrama and Collective Trauma
Time does not heal all wounds: decades after a disaster, entire communities may still experience the long-term effects of trauma. "Sociodrama and Collective Trauma" examines the psychological and social damage of trauma to society as a whole. Kellermann argues that collective trauma has been insufficiently considered; his timely book suggests practical ways of facilitating the rehabilitation of survivors of collective trauma through, for example, sociodrama and related group work. The author develops methods for understanding the past and preparing for the future and provides a wealth of case studies based on 30 years' experience of treating survivors of war trauma and other forms of disaster. Combining a systematic theoretical approach with a practical methodology, this insightful book is invaluable for drama therapists, group therapists, mental health professionals and counsellors.

Rob WienerCreative Training: Sociodrama and Team-building
Looking at how to run staff training groups and at what to do with stuck teams, this "how to do it" guide is aimed at people in the health and social services who want their training to be imaginative, energetic and effective. The latest theories in staff training are examined, with a focus on how to use sociodrama as a training tool. Using jargon-free language, the author explains how, unlike psychodrama, sociodrama utilizes hypothetical events, derived from the concerns and experiences of the group, as a basis for developing a deeper understanding of social situations.
