In psychodrama, doubling is a technique where a participant, perhaps asked by the psychodrama director, supplements the role of the protagonist, usually by standing behind them and saying things that the protagonist might want to say or is withholding. In this way one is able to hear things that may reflect what they feel or think. Thereby, the doubling can help provoke abreactive and mental catharsis, insight, and transformation.
