The process to obtain certification as a practitioner in psychodrama (CP) is a comprehensive process requiring 780 training hours, a year-long supervised practicum, a written exam, and an on-site exam. For full details on certification, visit the website of the American Board of Examiners in Sociometry, Psychodrama, and Group Psychotherapy.

The written exam is only offered once per year in October which creates extra pressure to prepare and pass the exam for applicants. Psychodrama training has traditionally emphasized the experiential components of the learning process over didactic teaching of psychodrama’s history, theory, philosophy, research, and ethics. Understandably, many applicants for the exam seek a refresher course or additional learning related to these areas before taking their written exam. Together with Actions Explorations, we have created a comprehensive pre-recorded video course which includes 7-parts (one for each section of the written exam) that you can digest at your own pace. The course includes teaching, examples, and discussion on all parts of the exam, as well as a review of nearly every question asked on past exams (which are published by the board as a exam study tool). The course can be purchased as a 7-part package for only $230; or as individual courses – Click Here to View the Course Purchasing Options

The exam prep course includes the following seven parts, which can also be purchased individually:

1. History
2. Philosophy
3. Methodology
4. Ethics
5. Sociometry
6. Research and Evaluation
7. Related fields

The course instructor, Dr. Scott Giacomucci, DSW, LCSW, BCD, CGP, FAAETS, TEP, has served as a grader for the ABE exam in the past while publishing and teaching extensively in each of the seven exam areas. Scott has published a popular textbook on psychodrama, co-edited the autobiography of Jacob Moreno, teaches psychodrama in multiple universities and ongoing training offerings in Media, Pennsylvania. He also is co-chair of the psychodrama research committee, co-chief-editor of the Journal of Sociometry, Psychodrama, and Group Psychotherapy, and serves on the Executive Council of the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama (ASGPP).
