I sent my recommendations if the Quintessential Zerka that had many of her original research including Doubling with Mothers as a child clinic.
There is also a technique article in that book.
WSS had a 1937 edition before the 1953.
The other text is Psychodrama, Volume 2 where all techniques are presented in detail with examples.
N of course there is the new book my Scott Giacomucci on psychodrama. I can get you a reference if you need it.

The patient is asked to place himself in the role of someone in his social atom, and an auxiliary ego--or the actual person whom the patient is to portray, if possible--is placed In the role of the patient.
> It is this line that grabs my attention: "-or the actual person whom the patient is to portray, if possible-". This is the situation where a 'natural group' is present. A family or a couple. Has anyone had experience working with such real life role reversal? I have experimented with it in couple therapy, without much evidence of it working so well. The auxiliary finds it hard to tolerate what they perceive as inaccurate portrayal by the protagonist. I'd be interested to hear if anyone has seen it work well.

>> I am sending you a copy in case you don’t have it. It’s very interesting how he (they) developed these techniques particularly on disturbed patients, essentially dealing with aberrations in psychological development. Zerka did most of the writing and experimenting with being a double (1946, 1948). Then later they must have realised that this was a major insight and pulled it together in the 3 stages of double, mirror and role reversal (1952).

I’m interested if the Stages of the Double, the Mirror and Role Reversal which first appear in 1952 (see Fox) are mainly Moreno’s attempt to provide his techniques with a theory.
