Possibilities and limitations of Psychodrama Online
Manfred Jannicke, Gerda Mävers, Johanna Olberding
In the midst of and out of the pandemic situation in 2020, the psychodramatic world experienced an enormous expansion: all over the world, psychodramatists began to experiment with their method in the virtual space of the internet – with the help of video platforms that enable interpersonal interaction in real time despite lock downs, isolation and distance.
This initiated discussions about the limits and possibilities of psychodramatic online work, ranging from euphoric reactions to the expansion of the spectrum of possibilities to the question of what can still be called psychodrama at all.
In this anthology, practical experiences, methods, insights and tensions regarding online psychodrama are presented and discussed.
