In this presentation we will review the experience of the project
EMPoWER-Daphne I in Portugal where the project was developed jointly by the
Sociedade Portuguesa de Psicodrama (SPP) and União de Mulheres de
Alternativa de Resposta (UMAR), that have integrated, respectively, their
ecological model, their intervention methods and psychodrama. It is our aim to
share the experience of the intervention with women victims of violence, including:
the structure and proceedings of the intervention by both teams; the issues
connected to the ecological intervention; and the issues connected to the
psychodrama group process and the psychodrama techniques and their adequacy
for the group.
