What about research about psychodrama?
Here's a topic for conversation with psychodrama students, practitioners and trainers.

Research helps us define our work and its value. Although it is probably accurate to say that it is never really possible to quantify the amazing human spirit, we can also say that research studies offer a beginning point to observe the value of the action method and how it can be applied in the world at large.
