Dear Colleagues,

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of a Psychodrama Book

[image: cover-psychodrama_21st_century.jpg]

Psychodrama in the 21st Century: Clinical and Educational Applications,
Springer Publications, New York, 2003

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of this book.

The endorsement of the late Zerka T. Moreno, summarizes the book's unique
qualities. She wrote:

“This volume is a brave and ambitious undertaking. It brings together the
work of a large number of authors who interweave a variety of disciplines
with the philosophy, principles, and applications of the oeuvre of the late
J. L. Moreno, MD, so as to give the reader a round-the-world horizon.”

The book was inspired by Robert Siroka, a student of Moreno who founded the
Sociometric Institute of New York. He and his wife Jacquie led a seminar in
which I participated, and after a year of meeting I took it upon myself to
contact psychodrama leaders around the world. They contributed chapters to
this book, representing various ways of applying psychodrama into their own
work. Some of the chapters are ground breaking, and editing this book was
the highlight of my work in this creative field.

The book has been translated into Portuguese (in Brazil 🇧🇷), Chinese🇨🇳 and
