Alterations of Consciousness during Psychodrama and Sociodrama
Scientific Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Psychology - Consulting, Therapy, , 30 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Psychodrama and sociodrama participants in general, and protagonists in particular, often report that during a session their conscious experience is altered. Many are in fact drawn to experiential methods by their desire for this experience of heightened awareness. Psychodrama will be seen as altering most of the 14 dimensions of changed subjective experience that characterise altered states of consciousness (ASC’s). Psychodramatists need to be aware of both the dangers and benefits of experiencing altered states. As in hypnosis, the director needs to be especially careful not to elicit false memories or make strong suggestions.
