Neuropsychodrama is a trauma-informed approach to the use of psychodrama. It is experiential, role oriented, and relational; particular attention is paid to what clients experience when they enter the trauma vortex, or the reliving that is often a part of healing from trauma. Relational Trauma Repair, is an experiential, psychoeducational model for treating posttraumatic stress disorder. Clients are led through an experiential, sociometric process that is integrated with research findings on trauma, grief, and positive psychology. The model guides group members through a fluid process that creates “teachable moments” as it heals. Individual growth and learning is often motivated and stimulated through participating with other group members. Relational Trauma Repair teaches about the range of symptoms involved in grief and posttraumatic stress disorder while inspiring clients to reach for positive emotions and forgiveness.
