Sherin Khaled Helmy Dahroug, For Obtaining Doctorate Degree in Arts, Psychology Department (United Kingdom)


The paragraph outlines the comprehensive methodology adopted in a study focusing on the efficacy of a psychodrama therapeutic program aimed at bolstering self-empowerment and mitigating self-stigma among individuals grappling with mental illness. This research endeavor entailed meticulous planning and execution, starting with the selection of a sample group comprising 30 participants from Abbasiya Mental Health Hospital. The study embraced a multifaceted approach, blending elements of experimental and clinical methodologies to glean insights into the intricate dynamics of self-empowerment and self-stigma reduction. To gauge the impact of the intervention accurately, a variety of assessment tools were employed. These tools included self-empowerment and self-stigma scales, designed to capture nuanced changes in participants' psychological states. Additionally, the Projective Rorschach Scale, renowned for its capacity to uncover subconscious thoughts and feelings, was utilized to provide further depth to the analysis. A pivotal aspect of the methodology was the formulation and testing of hypotheses. Drawing upon established principles of scientific inquiry, researchers crafted hypotheses to guide their investigation and ascertain the effectiveness of the psychodrama program. Statistical analysis played a crucial role in evaluating the hypotheses, with the use of SPSS software facilitating rigorous data scrutiny and interpretation. The findings of the study underscored the transformative potential of the psychodrama intervention, revealing significant improvements in self-empowerment and notable reductions in self-stigma levels among participants. Such outcomes hold profound implications for clinical practice, shedding light on novel avenues for therapeutic intervention in the realm of mental health. Beyond the immediate implications for clinical practice, the methodology adopted in this study holds broader significance. By addressing professional training needs in psychology and filling existing research gaps, the research contributes to the ongoing discourse surrounding mental health treatment modalities. Moreover, the meticulous approach to methodology serves as a blueprint for future research endeavors seeking to explore the intricacies of psychodrama therapy and its impact on individuals' psychological well-being.
