Birth Psychodrama
Birth Psychodrama is a school and system that is taught in Istanbul Birth Academy for the first time in the world. The birth psychologist, who is a psychodramatist, carries out short and deep individual psychodrama studies at the moment of birth with the expectant mother or the birth team. The main techniques of psychodrama are role changing, matching and even mirror techniques which can be applied at the time of delivery. The birthplace is perhaps not suitable for verbal therapies, but a technique based on action and spontaneity, such as psychodrama, can create miracles about birth.
