This book explores the fertile territory where psychodrama can empower and enrich, as well as learn from, other therapeutic modalities. -- from the Foreword by Marcia Karp, MA, TEP, a Founding member of the British Psychodrama Association and the Federation of European Psychodrama
As novice practitioners, we learn our therapies in their pure forms, cautioned and anxious at deviating from accepted methodology. As veteran and multi-qualified clinicians, we develop our own ways of integrating therapeutic methods with little external guidance. This book is a rare and brave exploration of this contentious theme. It is a treasure trove of insights for psychodramatists, and provides much food for thought for any therapist who uses action methods to inform and enrich their practice. -- Rose Leggett, MSc, RMN, CAMHS Clinical Nurse Specialist, psychodramatist, child psychotherapist and EMDR practitioner, Cheshire, UK
Contributors to the book come from a wide variety of therapeutic modalities... The book provides and makes good use of case studies that help the reader to understand the psychodramatic process and its effectiveness... I enjoyed reading this book and finding out about the therapeutic benefits of psychodrama and can see how some of Moreno's ideas could be included within the play therapy space. -- Sally Perry, PTUK Accredited Play Therapist and Trainee Clinical Supervisor * Play for Life *
