The Essential Moreno was first published by Springer Publishing Company in 1987 and has been a classic in the psychodrama literature since then, with numerous foreign-language editions. Tusitala is pleased to take over the publication of this important collection of excerpted writings of psychodrama’s legendary founder J. L. Moreno, including basic and advanced concepts and techniques, and verbatim transcripts of psychodrama sessions.


“It is not the usual book on psychiatry, psychotherapy, or psychopathology. It is a book about living, and the massive contribution of a true master.”
