Creative Supervision Across Modalities

Edited by Anna Chesner and Lia Zografou
Creative methods can bring depth and new perspectives to the supervision process. This book proposes that a firm understanding of supervision theory is the vital foundation to utilising the power of creativity in reflection and learning, and demonstrates that these creative approaches are applicable across disciplines, providing useful reflective tools across and beyond the arts therapies. It provides a theoretical approach to supervision, with a presentation and discussion of the philosophy, theory and place of creative technique. Jessica Kingsley Publishers


Supervision in Psychodrama. Experiential Learning in Psychotherapy and Training

Johannes Krall, Jutta Fürst, Pierre Fontaine (Eds.)

Supervision plays an essential role in the process of learning and professional development in psychotherapy and training. High quality in supervision is a crucial part of the training to support and to guide trainees and to be a reliable point of reference in terms of practice and theory, technical and methodological standards, ethical issues, research and evaluation. Therefore, the main purpose of this book is to share ways of doing supervision in psychodrama among supervisors and trainers in different countries and to stimulate further discussion and development.



The Future of Man’s World

J.L. Moreno
Published by the North-West Psychodrama Association and the Zerka T. Moreno Foundation, this booklet is a re-print, originally published in 1947 by Beacon House, in Psychodrama Monograph no 21. It is a brief presentation of Moreno’s thoughts on sociatry, within the context of his views on man’s self, man’s relationship to the Godhead and his potential for spontaneous creation, as opposed to the ‘robot’. The NWPA has published this booklet in collaboration with Ed Schreiber and the Zerka T. Moreno Foundation for Training, Research and Education, with all profits form this book being donated to the Foundation. Lulu Printings


Psychodrama and Group Psychotherapy

J.L. Moreno
Contains a synopsis of Moreno’s major contributions to theories and practice of sociometry and spontaneity, illustrated with diagrams ranging from the Canon of Creativity to social atoms, leadership structures, and complex social systems. The book provides a depth and range of description and discussion that truly grounds the reader.A list of general hypotheses and a glossary complete the text. J.L. Moreno’s contributions have never been timelier than they are now. His work looked forward to a time when the study of human societies would move across boundaries of culture and politics into a truly international field.


Sociometry, Experimental Method and the Science of Society

J. L. Moreno 
His writing, like the method he pioneered, is rich and complex. Students, practitioners and participants have encountered Moreno’s work in action; however, fewer people may have had the opportunity to read and think about the ‘words of the father’ due to the limited availability of key texts. A desire to ensure Moreno’s work is available inspired members of the North West Psychodrama Association to work together to re-publish the books in this series. By doing so J. L. Moreno’s 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.

Psychodrama with Trauma Survivor: Acting Out Our Pain

Peter Felix Kellermann, M.K. Hudgins (Eds.)
In a world where natural, social, and political disasters are a reality, the therapist is called upon to find rapid and effective methods of treating the survivors of trauma, including sexual abuse, torture, war-related trauma, addiction, depression, and bereavement. The contributors to this book provide evidence of how psychodrama can safely be used to create paths of change for even the most severe traumatization and they also discuss the possible transmission of trauma patterns across generations.
