Three researchers from the BRAC James P Grant School of Public Health attended a workshop from 22 - 26 July in Chennai, India. Afzal Aftab (Research Coordinator), Ashfique Rizwan (Senior Research Assistant) and Arifur Rahman Apu (Research Assistant) from the NWO-WOTRO funded project “Psychodrama as a Transformative Intervention in the SRH of Young Men in Urban Slums in Dhaka: Proof of a Novel Approach” learned different methods of Psychodrama and Socio-drama such as role reversal, mirroring, doubling and different sociometric techniques. From this workshop, they garnered a clear understanding of the role theory of personality, which will enable the researchers to fix the indicators for measuring the behaviour change among the psychodrama intervention participants in their project.

The workshop was conducted by the Indian Institute of Psychodrama and facilitated by Sue Daniel, TEP, Director of Melbourne Institute of Psychodrama who is a pioneer of psychodrama in New Zealand and Australia.
