Inspired by the writings of J.L. Moreno, the contributors to this volume present a wide range of clinical and educational applications of psychodrama with various client groups, problems and settings.

Part One explores the integration of psychodrama and sociometry with other therapy methods including structural family therapy, art therapy, and group therapy. Part Two describes innovative applications of action methods to different groups, such as trauma survivors, and the lesbian, gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) community. Applications of psychodrama in education, training and consultation with such diverse professionals as lawyers, physicians and psychiatrists concludes this comprehensive text.
