Scripted drama is a fantastic way to start a session and get the energy going with groups large or small. It quickly engages hearts and minds, addressing complex issues in a safe environment. This is not only great fun, but provides an opportunity for real debate, discussion and sharing of best practice.
At the end of the scene, the Facilitator leads the delegates in identifying and discussing the issues and behaviours. There is also the opportunity for the characters to be ‘hot seated’ (i.e. questioned and challenged directly by the delegates). This enables everyone in the room to explore the challenges, develop a common understanding and start to focus on the desirable behaviours which will achieve real change.
