Abstract

As defined by the National Association of Social Workers, a binding core value of all professional social workers is competency: the aspiration and action of contributing to the professional knowledge base (National Association of Social Workers, 2008). The intention of this systematic review is to advance professional knowledge base by providing a current review of empirical psychodrama literature and to advocate for further research and investment concerning psychodrama and its expansive potentials. The following research will seek to identify particular populations and problems most associated with effective use of psychodramatic techniques. Congruently, the work will also pursue a differentiation of what specific psychodrama methods and techniques are most often successfully implemented. Discussions and conclusions will highlight any specific gaps in current literature and research.
