Change processes in psychodrama Baum, Susan
The purpose of this study is to investigate the meaning of a significant psychodrama experience for participants in a psychodrama workshop. After the workshop is completed, participants were invited to take part in the study. The study involved a taped interview session using open ended questions and a written confirmation of analysis. The coresearchers were asked to describe their experiences after the psychodrama. The interview was tape recorded and transcribed. The transcripts were analyzed for themes. Theme statements were mailed to the co-researchers for verification. Additional remarks or deletions by the co-researchers were incorporated into the theme statements. The theme statements were then clustered and a description of the experience created. From the description, an essential structure was established. The study used an existential - phenomenologicai approach to describe the meaning of the experience for the group of six co - researchers.
