Dear Peter,

Perhaps the Brazilian "Internal Psychodrama" is a similar approach...

The practice and the research of our Brazilian colleagues, Dalmiro Bustos,
Rosa Cukier, Vitor Dias, Jose Fonseca and others.

The book, 'Bipersonal Psychodrama: Its Techniques, Therapists, And Clients
Paperback', 2010 by Rosa Cukier might be a good resource.

Kind regards,
