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. Published by Jessica Kingsley.

Jacob Levy Moreno
This handy volume collects the best and most important writings of J.L. Moreno in one concise and accessible place. This collection explores Moreno’s thought in developing psychodrama and sociometry, with his strong emphasis on spontaneity and creativity. The book discusses both basic and advanced concepts and techniques of psychodramatic treatment. The reader will find extensive examples from Moreno’s own cases containing verbatim transcripts that illustrate the give and-take between Moreno, his patients, and the audience observers. Jonathan Fox introduces the book with a brief overview of Moreno’s life and ideas. Published by Springer
It is impossible to do justice to this interesting and challenging piece of work within the limits of a review. To get its full meaning, to see the tremendous importance, one needs not only to read it carefully and give it thoughtful study, but to actually apply some of his tests, as the reviewer did, and to watch their working out within a group. Then it becomes apparent that here really is a method of observation of group reactions, or rather the reactions of individuals within the group, which not only throws light upon the personalities composing the group, but can aid in the arranging of people in communities.
Paul Holmes, Marcia Karp, Mike Watson (Eds.), introduction by Zerka T. Moreno
Internationally recognized practitioners of the psychodramatic method, many trained by Moreno himself, discuss innovations in the theory and practice of psychodrama since Moreno’s death in 1974. This book explains the key concepts of this powerful method of group psychotherapy and shows how these ideas have developed and inspired their practice as therapists. Published by Routledge.
This book introduces the rationale, theory and psychotherapeutic practice of psychodrama. It provides an insight into its origins, outlining its techniques and bringing to life the interrelationships that form the core of the practice. Following the theatrical process that lies at the heart of psychodrama, the book shows how the enactment of scenes from the past, present or future, real or imagined, can benefit the group of individuals involved, leading to unexpected insight and growth through creativity and spontaneity.
