The course introduces students to the fundamentals of sociodrama. Sociodrama is a theater-based methodology widely used today in group problem solving and consensus building. Students explore the theoretical bases of sociodrama through improvisation, role play, and theater games as they create scenarios around social issues relevant to the group. Sociodrama techniques, such as freeze frame, role reversal, mirror and sculpting are taught as a means of exploring multiple perspectives to solving problems and assessing options.
