Working one-to-one with children in a school setting, the author describes her adaptations of the classical group psychodrama approach to her work within this setting and with this client group. She uses role analysis both to support her work with the young clients in the sessions and also as a language for team discussions in the wider system around the child. The classical psychodrama structure of warm-up, action and sharing is used as container for the therapeutic process. Moreno began his journey towards the development of the psychodrama method through his play with children in Vienna. The author gives examples of her use of the three main psychodramatic techniques of doubling, mirror and role reversal, which relate closely to child development. She applies role analysis both to real-life situations within the session or school and to fictional material created or used in the sessions.
