Role reversal is one of the psychodrama techniques that demonstrate a protagonist’s intrapersonal conflicts deeply and explicitly on the stage.[1] This technique is perhaps the single most important and effective technique in psychodrama.[2][3] In psychodrama, the protagonist is invited to move out of his own position or role into the significant other’s position and enact that role.[4] Therefore, the auxiliary ego can observe and learn how to play the role.

Role reversal

For example, in a parents-children session, a protagonist who is the child reverses role with one of his or her parents.
