Impromptu Man

Jonathan D. Moreno
mpromptu Man is the story of an unlikely combination of ideas that have helped shape our time.  Seen through the colorful personality and long career of one of the 20th century’s great innovators, the psychiatrist and psychodrama founder J.L. Moreno, this epic history takes the reader from the creative chaos of Habsburg Vienna to the wired world of Silicon Valley.  Impromptu Man is also a personal journey of discovery about the author’s father, who he only knew as an old man who watched as his profound insights were pulled apart and absorbed by the culture, ideas that have been richly vindicated in the 40 years since his death.


The Philosophy, Theory and Methods of J. L. Moreno

John Nolte
This book outlines Moreno’s early years (his religious phase), the philosophy on which the foundation of his methods are based, and a description of the three major methods Moreno originated: psychodrama, sociometry, and group psychotherapy. It provides a more systematic presentation of Moreno’s work and presents his philosophy and theory clearer, understandable manner.


Counseling and Drama / Psychodrama a deux

Marvin G. Knittel Ed. D.
This book deals with action methods of counseling when working one-on-one and with families. He explains psychodrama, its origin, and how it fits within the field of counseling. A limited number of publications exclusively devoted to explaining how psychodrama is used with one-on-one counseling were found and are summarized. They reflect divergent opinions which prompted the writing of this book for the seasoned professional counselor in the field and. for students in training.


Integrating Psychodrama and Systemic Constellation Work

Karen Carnabucci and Ronald Anderson
Constellation work is based on the notion that people are connected by unseen energetic forces and suggests that the psychological, traumatic and survival experiences of our ancestors are genetically passed forward to the next generation and may live within us. Using insightful case studies from a variety of client groups, this book shows how Systemic Constellation Work can expand the possibilities of psychodrama techniques, and can be successfully integrated with psychodramatic enactment, guided imagery, ritual, concretization and other methods of healing and personal growth.


Healing Eating Disorders with Psychodrama and Other Action Methods

Karen Carnabucci and Linda Ciotola
The authors describe how they have introduced action methods to work with a diverse range of clients, and suggest ways in which psychodrama practitioners, experiential therapists and others may integrate these methods into their practice. Offering fresh ideas for tailoring psychodramatic standards such as The Living Newspaper, Magic Shop and the Social Atom to eating disorder issues, they provide extensive examples of psychodrama interventions – classic and specially adapted for eating disorders – for both the experienced practitioner and those new to experiential therapies.


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.
