Abstract:   (111 Views)
Background :The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of psychodrama on behavioral improvement and marital relationship. Subjects had to have been out of their abusive relationships for at least two months before taking part in the study.
Method :The research was conducted by 10 couples. They were allocated at random to either an experimental group receiving psychodrama treatment or a control group receiving whatever treatment was available to them if the research was not taking place. In the following three weeks, each of three sections of psychodrama experimental groups met for one eighteen-hour weekend and for three, three-hour evening sessions.
Result: The Rathus Assertiveness Schedule and the Rotter I-E Scale were administered to both groups before and after treatment. Despite the fact that both the experimental and comparison groups showed substantial improvements in behavioral improvement and marital relationship from pre to post, the experimental group did not display significantly more gains than the comparison group.
Conclusion :The subjects who received psychodrama treatment were, however, reported feeling better and were enthusiastic about the process. Others, after attending psychodrama sessions, expressed interest in attending more psychodrama weekends.
