Psychodrama: Advances in Theory and Practice provides a comprehensive overview of developments in the theory and practice of psychodrama, integrating different psychodramatic schools of thought.
Psychodrama is one of the pioneering approaches of psychotherapy and is practised by thousands of practitioners and in most countries of the world.

The editors of this volume bring together contributions from Europe, South America, Australia, Israel and the USA to explain and explore recent innovations. They look at how psychodrama has contributed to the development of psychotherapy, introducing concepts that have had a profound influence on other therapies. These include concepts such as role theory, the encounter, the co-unconscious, the social atom, sociometry, action research, group psychotherapy, the cycle of spontaneity and creativity, role play and many related concepts and techniques.

This book will be of great interest to all students, practitioners and trainers in the field of psychodrama. It will also appeal to professionals and students in the related fields of psychotherapy, counselling, psychology and psychiatry...
--- from the publisher


At last, a book series that will help to make the ideal of effective continuing professional development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling more of a reality. Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the books offer a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory in their particular theoretical model. - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex

This book represents the first global project in psychodramatic literature in the 21st century. The outstanding benefits of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy have spread across the globe. All of the human sciences are increasingly benefiting from approaches that have grown out of the introduction of the psychodramatic stage and its related healing techniques. [...] What joy to give this miraculous product of human creativity into the reader's care. - Grete A. Leutz, MD, Founder of the Moreno Institute for Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy, Ãœberlingen, Germany; Fellow of the International Association of Group Psychotherapy

This volume pays homage to the genius of J. L. Moreno, who has inspired us all. The element that is basic to all of the instruments he gave us is that of The Encounter: eye-to-eye, face to face, nothing standing between us. His activities underscore the need for all of us to continue to join him in his endeavor to enable The Encounter. May this book be part of that endeavor. - Zerka T. Moreno, co-creator of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy
