Description

This book explores the exciting areas of overlap between psychodrama and other therapeutic schools and presents opportunities for their creative interaction and integration.

Psychodramatists, to varying degrees, integrate the ideas and philosophies of other forms of psychotherapy into their clinical practice. Similarly, other therapists make use of the action methods of psychodrama. This edited volume contains contributions from a variety of dual-trained therapists qualified in psychodrama and trained in another therapeutic modality, including dramatherapy, occupational therapy, art therapy, family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and more. Each chapter considers a different model of interaction and integration between therapeutic schools and explains how they can enhance and enrich a therapist's professional practice. In doing so, this book reveals an understanding of the core commonalities of the therapeutic process.

With clinical case studies illustrating enhanced practice through creative interaction of the therapeutic schools, this book will be of interest to psychodramatists and all other therapists who integrate action techniques into their clinical practice.

Review quote

Contributors to the book come from a wide variety of therapeutic modalities... The book provides and makes good use of case studies that help the reader to understand the psychodramatic process and its effectiveness... I enjoyed reading this book and finding out about the therapeutic benefits of psychodrama and can see how some of Moreno's ideas could be included within the play therapy space. -- Sally Perry, PTUK Accredited Play Therapist and Trainee Clinical Supervisor * Play for Life * As novice practitioners, we learn our therapies in their pure forms, cautioned and anxious at deviating from accepted methodology. As veteran and multi-qualified clinicians, we develop our own ways of integrating therapeutic methods with little external guidance. This book is a rare and brave exploration of this contentious theme. It is a treasure trove of insights for psychodramatists, and provides much food for thought for any therapist who uses action methods to inform and enrich their practice. -- Rose Leggett, MSc, RMN, CAMHS Clinical Nurse Specialist, psychodramatist, child psychotherapist and EMDR practitioner, Cheshire, UK This book explores the fertile territory where psychodrama can empower and enrich, as well as learn from, other therapeutic modalities. -- from the Foreword by Marcia Karp, MA, TEP, a Founding member of the British Psychodrama Association and the Federation of European Psychodrama
