Recruitment Screening Through Sociodrama and Psychodrama Techniques

Candidate Scrfeening


One of the primary problems in corporate world is failed attempts in training programs against considerable budget, time and efforts with respect to initial objectives and desired behavioral shifts. Higher failure rates leads to increased levels of skepticism towards training selection and design processes and higher desire to understand how those trainings will work to create desired results.

Practical trainings getting more popularity as they encourage active participation and creates a confortable environment. It is a well-established fact that most effective way of learning is learning through active participation and personal experience. This method not only creates a “persistence” impact as allows participants to live, try and experience topics directly, but also creates swift transition to desired mode of behavior.

Journey within practical trainings are from unknown to a known destination. As this “unknown” becomes a “known”, a new target is set as destination. Every lived experience is built on a previous attitude, knowledge and skill set in building something new.

Practical trainings give us a framework. It is us that needs to fill this framework. People are ever-active participants of this process. They discover, gain insight and creates their own unique experiences.

Practical trainings do not impose a specific knowledge or skillset. Participants are allowed to to create own personal journey to discover themselves.

“Every individual should behave like an artist that has the responsibility of creating his every moments. This is a pre-requisite for a healthy life” Deniz Altınay


Organizations that care human factor prefer creative, action oriented and spontaneous individuals. But how that can be achieved?

The answer is clear!!

Sociodrama and Psychodrama method aims to re-gain creativity and spontaneity of individuals who lost those capabilities in family, school-life, social life. It emphasizes compliance is something beyond obedience and following rules blindly and states creative initiative-taking is crucial for problem solving. Conventional teaching activities are not powerful enough as they are based on verbal teaching. Ming forgets, body remembers, hence action is needed to embed a training.

Regardless of naming and classification, every practical training uses a level of Sociodrama and Psychodrama. Actions executed in Sociodrama and Psychodrama creates new a window, skill or knowledge for participants by increasing awareness and consciousness level.

Effectiveness of practical trainings does not only comes from being engaged into an action. As process components of training fit for overall objectives and genuine experts are guiding participants in insight discovery journey, training becomes a real changer. Nevertheless, as practical trainings getting more popularity, we observe emergence of a number of  programs that promise “game-playing and fun” become mainstream.

Real needs of organizations are well beyond just a training that gives pleasant moments to participants, hence you need to understand which program is best-fitting your requirements.

Listening and understanding is only a dimension of trainings, yet key differentiator is ability to create a permanent change in attitude and skills. Sociodrama and Psychodrama helps training programs to make it sticky and persistent in this behavioral change.
