Its a perfect application Adam.

No one can accuse themselves of doing therapy! :)

No one can accuse themselves of meddling or breaking boundaries or inappropriately falling in love.

In an organisation a person is not thought to be odd if they are standing my themselves working on a white board and drawing connecting lines or similar. Auto-dramas are neither in nor out of the therapeutic sub-group. 

You may sense I am enjoying myself. 

Cheers for the moment

These are the dramas a person is able to do on their own using objects and imagining themselves as both director, protagonist, and all the roles required in the drama? Neil Hucker demonstrated it some years ago at an AANZPA conference (the next ones in Brisbane) and it went a treat. Of course, demonstrating meant that there was an audience of sorts but in this case we all watched only. It was high drama as well as therapeutic for him.

I’ve found it very valuable for myself and have taught it to a few advanced trainees as a method of dealing with next day planning issue anxieties for groups and the like.
