J.L. Moreno: Words of the Father

All creatures are alone. Until the love of creating form a world around them. Psychodrama is a call for becoming the co-creators of the world. The video features a fragment of the 1963 interview.

A quick selfie by Zerka

No doubt she stopped suffering last September 19, but fortunately she left us a number of additional messages. Here, Zerka explains one of the simplest psychodramatic techniques: “Here I am, this is who I am, this is how I live.” As an example, she also presents herself, and then she adds: “It is not a matter of how long you live, it’s a question of what to do with that life.”
Interview by Sergio Guinamares.

Zerka Moreno: Don’t tell me. Show me… And interview by Victor Yalom

Johnathan Moreno: Impromptu Man, Impromptu Son?

Jonathan D. Moreno talks about his book on J. L. Moreno’s ideas. No, he is not a psychodramatist. As a Professor, he expresses his critical views on his father’s difficulties in designing a legacy, on the widespread use of role playing, and on psychodrama being used for training operatives, among a few other issues.

Fame and Shame

Looking at the bright and the dark sides of our national identities to find alternatives crossing borders.

It is astonishing how many positive developments we find in Germany after World War II. But off course the horror of the Nazi time and the two world wars still throw a shadow on national identity and German self esteem.

Other member countries of FEPTO have different problems and resistances to cope with the painful and dark sides of their national history. To do this in a constructive and healing way is not easy, but necessary.

The transgenerational view in psychotherapy and historical research demonstrates, how deeply rooted collective experience and trauma are. We are happy to have Luise Reddemann as guest lecturer; she is an experienced and well known trauma therapist. In her lecture she is going to focus on shame conflicts in Germany.

As European colleagues we want to help each other to look at collective resources as well as conflicts in our countries (and in Europe) to understand them better and, if possible, to find good coping strategies. Conflicts are different in each country and have different ways to show, but in general they make us vulnerable.

We have to be careful with each other when we try to find answers to the questions above that might be helpful. What are we proud of, what are we ashamed of, what are we afraid of? What is painful? What is denied or taboo? What should be forgotten or remembered and in which way? How can we evaluate our past in a way that gives orientation for today and basic ideas or values for future development?  What is needed for a positive and open Europe and what can we contribute? Let`s look together

The documentary film Fame and Shame from the FEPTO and DFP e.V. Conference, organized in Bonn, Germany, in May 2015. Produced and directed by Pola Sell.
