At last, a book series that will help to make the ideal of effective continuing professional development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling more of a reality. Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the books offer a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory in their particular theoretical model. - Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex This book represents the first global project in psychodramatic literature in the 21st century. The outstanding benefits of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy have spread across the globe. All of the human sciences are increasingly benefiting from approaches that have grown out of the introduction of the psychodramatic stage and its related healing techniques. [...] What joy to give this miraculous product of human creativity into the reader's care. - Grete A. Leutz, MD, Founder of the Moreno Institute for Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy, A oeberlingen, Germany; Fellow of the International Association of Group Psychotherapy This volume pays homage to the genius of J. L. Moreno, who has inspired us all. The element that is basic to all of the instruments he gave us is that of The Encounter: eye-to-eye, face to face, nothing standing between us. His activities underscore the need for all of us to continue to join him in his endeavor to enable The Encounter. May this book be part of that endeavor. - Zerka T. Moreno, co-creator of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy
