The Perdekamp Emotional Method (PEM) was created by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp over a ten year period and offers a safe biological access to true emotions. Stephan Perdekamp found a direct connection between certain body organs and emotions producing a universal technique devoid of cultural and personal attachment. PEM offers clear and effective exercises and bio-energetic triggers to deal with the six basic emotions aggression, happiness, grief, lust, fear and revulsion (a basic emotion is an innate holistic muscle movement pattern). Originally created as a tool for actors, it quickly became obvious that PEM had unprecedented benefits for well-being. People working with PEM report clear benefits in helping with several issues: drug abuse, stress, burn out, anxiety, depression, Asperger’s, Autism.

(Extract of a testimonial of a patient with dual diagnosis: For example, one of the six pure emotions accessible through PEM is aggression. With PEM I find that it gives me an opportunity and a safe way of accessing and expressing this rage. What is fascinating about PEM is that I am not using the feeling/thoughts/traumatic memories as a means of triggering the aggression, but instead am able to access it via the physical exercises, and then by acting it out physically, I am able to express it and ‘work it off’ in a safe, physical way, until the energy is ‘spent’.)

Currently offered as part of the German school curriculum it has been officially recognized in the UK (the Solent University in Southampton is in the developing process for a post- graduate programme ‘Drama and well-being’ with PEM as the drama technique to connect young people with authentic emotional experiences) as a significant benefit to the development of young people. Furthermore, PEM has been offered in prisons in Scotland and Germany with discussions going forward to incorporate PEM into a long-term plan for the new education and fine arts programmes respectively as ‘anger-skill’ and communication development tool within the jail.

PEM’s success is largely due to its use of emotions as biological energetic impulses separated from personal memories or experiences.

Since developing PEM, the technique has been offered to thousands of people from six continents in over thirty countries, and its growth in health and well-being is becoming acknowledged world-wide.
