Greeting to readers of journal "Psychodrama and Modern Psychotherapy"

"A truly therapeutic method should have as its objective nothing less than the whole of mankind." These are the opening words to Moreno's first book on sociometry, written even before he had fully developed psychodrama. What he was saying, I think, is that a really good tool has applications far beyond the clinical context. I think of psychodrama and its associated methods as a very valuable group of "tools" that can help people develop better relations and promote more consciousness and emotional maturity. I hope your readers will explore a wide range of applications, in education, in management and organizations, and other settings.

Sincerely, Adam Blatner, M.D., Texas, USA, November, 2002

J. M. Sacks. The Voice of J. L. Moreno: Interview with of the founder of psychodrama

Interview of the founder of psychodrama, sociometry and group psychotherapy Jacob Levy Moreno, M. D., conducted by the famous American psychodramatist James M. Sacks, Ph. D., is a profound and comprehensive narrative about Moreno's life, about history of psychodrama, about its philosophical, religious and historical sources, about features of a psychodramatical method, about the value of psychodrama in the life of the modern society.

R. A. Zolotovitsky. Triune system of Moreno and prospects of our movement

Long time ago there ripened necessity to systematize our representations about what place is occupied with a psychodrama in Moreno's system, which at first opens to us not only as psychotherapy but also as social therapy (sociology) and as philosophy. At a deeper glance we distinguish two opposite aspects in any group action: dramatic (what happens) and sociometric (with whom happens). The sense of concept "group psychotherapy" is revealed and the better translation of it is offered in connection with Moreno. Finally, the Moreno's system manifests in three faces: as a science, as therapy and as an art.

M. Arendsen Hein. Transactional Analysis and Psychodrama: A combination that works well

In this article the theory of Transactional Analysis by Eric Berne (1910-1970) and the method of Psychodrama of Jacob L. Moreno (1889-1974) are brought together. The author states that Psychodrama is first of all a very important psychotherapeutic method, a way of doing therapy, but lacks a good theoretical foundation. Transactional Analysis theory is indeed a well founded theory and combines well with psychodrama. TA gives a theoretical frame of reference to the therapist, the director, through which it becomes easier to predict which interventions will work and which shall not be effective. Many examples are given.

K. V. Pavlov. Listen, what's girl's complaint or How "don't lose" the client

Borders of Gestalt-approach and Psychodrama are frequently unreasonably blurred in the mind of representatives of modern psychotherapeutic community. Presence of "hot chair", "abreaction of feelings" and/or "acting out of uncompleted situations in roles" at times are wrongly considered as indispensable attributes of Gestalt-session. The author considers attempts of redundant implementation of nonintegrated drama techniques from the point of view of the field theory, phenomenology and the Dialogue - the essential features of Gestalt-approach. The reasons for unreasonable "psychodramatizing" of Gestalt-approach are usually lack of knowledge on modern state of Gestalt, personal and professional problems of the practician. The present article is dedicated to the analysis of these problems.

The authors of the article continue to work at psychodramatical theatre, investigating how relations in psychodramatical group, with close people, to own illness, to the surrounding world, to themselves have changed after the exit beyond the hospital walls into the wide world with on tour performances.
