Among the psychotherapeutic contexts, the group setting can be very helpful to treat the emotional distress secondary to cancer. The psychodrama psychotherapy may assume a crucial role due to its methodological structure aimed at fostering affective expression, mutual support and identification, adaptive coping strategies, by adopting active methods in which body is firstly involved. This study aimed to explore the subjective experience of cancer patients taking part in a psychodrama psychotherapy group at San Paolo Hospital (Milan). An interpretative-phenomenological approach (IPA) was adopted to deepen the experience of patients participating in psychodrama group sessions and its value in improving their clinical an psychological life developing psychotherapeutic programs using a similar approach seems to represent a clinical need that must be considered as a specific component within cancer healthcare pathways.
