Introduction

"Gambling chair" is a group therapeutic exercise invented by the author to facilitate clients to relive and reformulate their problems in a dramatic form enabling them to face their concerns directly and immediately, in the living present. It is designed to encourage the expression of feelings that underlie personal problems of clients and their family through the use of psychodramatic techniques (Blatner, 2000; Leveton, 2001; Moreno, 1993). Thus, it emphasizes action therapy, not just psychotherapy. This exercise is used with one key client at a time, with other group members acting as helpers and supporters throughout the intervention. It is used during the performance or cohesive stage of a group when group rapport has been established and members' defensive masks have been removed. The intervention aims to confront clients with the negative effects of their behavior, handle events of emotional significance, uninhibit emotions, and gain insight into the client's own problems.
