Practical applications of Psychodramatic methods.

Psychodrama can be one of the most powerful tools used in psychotherapy. Charmingly illustrated with a wealth of case examples, this volume presents current training techniques and shows how to use them, whether as a complement to traditional verbal approaches, in individual or group therapy, in educational or community settings, or in many other contexts. Thoroughly updated and expanded, this third edition reviews the most recent developments in psychodrama theory, clarifies various new psychodramatic processes, and features extensive new references and an updated bibliography. In this volume, Dr. Blatner continues to provide the best practical primer of basic psychodramatic techniques.

Möte med Psykodrama

Filosofi Teori och Terapi

Author Lilian Borge

Denne boken handler om Psykodrama som del av et større metodesystem skapt av psykiateren Jacob Levi Moreno.  Mennesket oppfattes som et sosialt vesen med en medfødt skapende kraft og dermed mulighetene for å skape sitt eget liv gjennom spontane og adekvate handlinger. I denne prosessen står det skapende Øyeblikket sentralt. I psykodrama som terapeutisk og pedagogisk redskap er siktemålet å hjelpe mennesker i den aktive skapelsesprosessen av deres egne liv

The Living Stage:

A Step-by-Step Guide to Psychodrama, Sociometry and Experiential Group Therapy

Author. Tian Dayton 

An indispensable guide for all clinicians interested in experiential therapy, this book is a primer on psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy with step-by-step exercises.

Destined to become a classic for any experiential therapy library, this is a basic primer on psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy. With a foreword by Zerka Moreno, wife of the late J.L. Moreno, the father of experiential therapy, the book gives clinicians the tools to understand the theory and practice of experiential therapy. Filled with client stories, Moreno’s theories in his own words, plus step-by-step exercises they can use in their own practice, the book makes experiential work manageable for the clinician.

It also includes specific exercises that integrate trauma, grief and addiction theory and a brand new model for understanding trauma and addictive relationships.

The handbook of psychodrama

This handbook provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of psychodrama for professional and trainee psychodramatists. Following an introduction to the history and philosophy of psychodrama the theory is then brought to life by detailed first-hand accounts of psychodrama sessions. The structure of the book innovatively reflects that of the classic psychodrama session – Warm Up, Action, Sharing and the subsequent Processing. Chapters on psychodrama in action include discussion on the new use of psychodrama in the treatment of depression, and the relationship of the discipline to other group psychotherapies. The contributors vividly illustrate the contribution dramatic improvisation can make to emotional health.

The theatre of spontaneity

J. L. Moreno wrote books, chapters and articles about psychodrama. His writing, like the method he pioneered, is rich and complex. Many students, practitioners and participants around the world have encountered MorenoÕs work in action; however, fewer people may have had the opportunity to read and think about the Ôwords of the fatherÕ due to the limited availability of key texts. A desire to ensure MorenoÕs work is available to the widest possible audience inspired members of the North West Psychodrama Association to work together to re-publish the books in this series. We hope by doing so J. L. MorenoÕs words will continue to reverberate across time and space: inspiring new generations of practitioners to be as creative and spontaneous as is possible whilst managing the complexity of modern day practice.

Foundations of psychodrama

History, theory and practice
A companion to his now-classic Acting-In (Springer, 1996), Foundations of Psychodrama presents a framework for integrating psychodrama with other methods of practice. The third edition, developed from a 1985 monograph, had wide appeal to students and practitioners of psychodrama as well as functioning as a fresh stimulus to psychotherapy, education, pastoral counseling, and other helping roles. This fourth edition takes account of the increasing work in the field in the 12 years since the last edition and includes a good deal of new material designed to present a more specific rationale for the use of psychodramatic methods while constructing a more logical sequence of events. Dr. Blatner has made a great book even better.Author’s Website
