BALZANI, Bernard. Sociodrama: a group role playing device and an accompaniment device with a pre-therapeutic aim.Translated byViviane Veras. Estilos clin. [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.20, pp. 14-27. ISSN 1415-7128.

This article is a report on an experiment which was carried out with psychopath teenagers who had been left with an institution to be re-educated and reintegrated . in order to settle the tensions they necessarily face, these teenagers turn to a kind of action which has the merit of temporarily reducing the tensions they meet even if it doesn’t solve the root of the problem; As a consequence, verbalization and symbolization are not the favourite patterns in their verbal and relational exchanges , which most of the time degenerate into different forms of violent behaviour. If you consider it that way, socio drama is in fact the first step in the process of taking a grip on their important uneasiness.

Keywords : Role playing; Violence; Sociodrama; Psychopath teenagers.
