Psychodrama is a unique and entertaining beginner's guide to this active form of group psychotherapy, in which individual life situations, fears, inhibitions and emotions are explored on stage in a safe, non-judgemental and stimulating environment. The authors, professional psychodramatists Zoran Djuric and Jasna Veljkovic, explain in user-friendly terms the basics of the technique and present a step-by-step guide to running a psychodrama session. Fully illustrated with colour cartoons offering examples of real psychodrama sessions, Psychodrama explores both the theory and practice in an accessible way. Also included are explanations of key terms, such as "auxiliary ego", "echo" and "sociogram", along with comprehensive descriptions of techniques and the significant stages in a psychodrama session. As the first fully illustrated psychodrama book, this book will be welcomed by both students and professionals - whether wanting an accessible introduction, or to brush up on their knowledge.
Readers will include psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, students, trainers, counsellors and other mental health professionals, as well as anyone interested in participating in or running a psychodrama group.
