Unlike psychodrama, sociodrama focuses on group issues. It is a type of dramatic reenactment in which several individuals, usually members of a particular group, act out a chosen story for the purpose of issue identification, creative problem solving, and group cohesion.
Sociodrama “offers the opportunity for groups to clarify values and review behaviors, practicing new spontaneous and creative attitudes.”[i]
In order for business teams to perform at their highest potential level, group conflicts, both overt and covert, must be addressed and adequately resolved. Sociodrama offers a variety of tools to assist with this, and also in creating group safety and resolving group issues.
Sociodrama is also used as part of team-building events, which will be specific needs of the particular business team. After sociodramatic work, group members identify that team identity and bonding happen organically and previously elusive team solutions are derived.
The Michigan Psychodrama Center has worked with business owners and executives in businesses of all sizes throughout Michigan, including by way of example, TGI Direct, Movimento, AcuMax, A2 Energy Systems LLC, Spry Publishing, Compliance Training Partners/Drakeshire Dental, Booms Stone Co., The Hunter Group, LLC., Vistage Michigan, and dozens of other businesses and executives.
