sociodrama, groups, education, qualitative research, active method


In this article, the authors present sociodrama as an active method par excellence, as an action and experiential method for teaching, research and service to the community; discuss concepts about groups and group phenomena collected in their researches; expose the challenges of the educator as a social therapist; and make theoretical and practical reflections of their interventions in various institutions and knowledge areas. The authors also demonstrate, in a research on the inclusion of blacks students in the university, how the emergence of social roles interferes in power relation in the society and explains the need to develop an empathic dialogue; and present how a sociodramatic practice in education enables the management of conflicts and the creativity in the social and educational context.
