Sociodrama

We are not alone

In this podcast, we discuss sociodrama. Sociodrama is a way for groups to explore issues of common concern through the use of a range of interactive and experiential tools. We touch on how it is applicable in workplaces, as well as in the wider world. Some of the benefits of sociodrama are that it allows people to understand others better, to get a big picture of their wider systems and the forces that exert themselves on the group and to facilitate the group to generate closer working relationships so that they can come up with novel solutions to the problems they all face. In our workplaces, in our communities and in the wider world, we are faced with problems and challenges which we have never faced before.

Many of these are creating fear and leading us to become more isolated from one another, and sociodrama is a way for us to come together and realise that there is more that we have in common than what separates us. Perhaps the time is ripe for sociodrama and similar methods to be deployed before we find ourselves trapped in smaller and more enclosed echo chambers and self-referential bubbles?
