The four-phase CBN Psychodrama Model: A manualized approach for practice and research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents a four-phase psychodrama treatment model that integrates psychodramatic theory and practice with selected procedures from cognitive-behavioral therapy and narrative therapy (CBN Psychodrama). The model was developed by the authors during their work with Israeli at risk adolescents and focuses on the enhancement of self-control skills and instilling hope. The conceptual framework of the model is presented, followed by a detailed account of its treatment procedures and techniques, thus providing guidance in the form of a manualized approach that facilitates implementation for therapists, and pave the way toward a better integration of practice and research. The implementation of key processes and techniques is presented as a case study, and future directions are discussed.
