Psychodrama

Jacob L Moreno (1889-1974) created this technique for gaining insight into relationships that are buried in the unconscious. A New York psychiatrist, social scientist and polymath, his very early interest in theatre in Vienna led to psychodrama as a form of therapy around 1910 and it became very popular in the 1960s and 70s amongst the personal growth movement. Moreno was a pioneer and early psychotherapist. His work is profoundly interesting and reveals many aspects of the way we relate to others, especially family members. His writing is of great interest to those who follow his innovative understanding of interpersonal relationships and is well worth further study. Psychodrama is used is psychotherapy, in theatre training groups, if you are interested in psychodrama for use in court rooms by lawyers, take a look at the information on this link: http://asgpp.org/pdf/Cole_Psychodrama_Pt%201&2.pdf
