Dear Colleagues,


Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of a Psychodrama Book

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 Turkish🇹🇷.
