This contribution presents the main results of Empower which is a
research-intervention project in the real world that focuses on the problem of
gender-based violence, particularly domestic violence and the mother-daughter
relationship. The contribution develops the idea of Morenian sociatry where
psychodrama can be considered an elective intervention to help those who are
prisoners of victim-perpetrator relationships, since psychodrama proves valuable
for troubleshooting identity. The University of Padua leads in every aspect of this
project, and heads a partnership, composed of groups belonging to the FEPTO.
