Active, participative Dramatic Psychological Storytelling (DPS) is flexible and adaptable depending on the situation and the needs of those participating. The fluid nature of the process and the number of options available for use in different situations, offer nearly limitless possibilities. Professionals who have used DPS, including the authors, have found that even when the issue or problem seems vague or inconsequential and the themes tangled, by selectively focusing and following DPS, a path can be shaped. The same is true if the issue or problem seems overly complex.
