Psychodrama and role-playing techniques in supervision

  • Chantal Nève-Hanquet


Group supervision can be an opportunity to experiment with different psychodrama and role-playing techniques in order to reflect upon difficult situations encountered in professional lives. Psychodrama helps to explore multiple perspectives, while allowing elaboration of, and experimentation with different versions of what might or could be possible. The experience of life played out in the ‘as if’ play enables participants to approach, in all its intensity, their own lived experience and also that of the other (Anzieu, 1975, p. 57).
