Psychodrama is primarily seen as a group modality, but many therapists use psychodrama a deux (psychodrama with two) with dynamic results.

Participants will take home specific tools for working with a wide variety of populations in individual counseling and will learn to use, apply and practice the skills of Psychodrama a Deux.
