Psychodrama: An Introduction to Imagery in Action
Psychodrama is a deep-action method of psychotherapy founded by Jacob L. Moreno. A variety of sources credit Jacob Moreno with having founded group therapy (Blatner 1988; Fox, 1987) and, moreover, as having coined the phrase. According to Moreno, group therapy was an outgrowth of his work in developing psychodrama; and not, as is popularly misconstrued, the other way around (Fox, 1987). As such the understanding of psychodrama may provide a historically advantageous foundation for group psychotherapy.
