BYPERSONAL PSYCHODRAMA: ITS TECHNIQUES, THERAPISTS AND CLIENTS
BIPERSONAL PSYCHODRAMA: ITS TECHNIQUES, THERAPISTS, AND CLIENTS
This book, as the author says, “is not a kind of recipe book “, but “it was designed to offer ‘tips’”. It will be extremely useful to the psycodramatists in general, and certainly a success among the beginners. Rosa Cukier is a rare example of a professional who came from psychoanalysis to psychodrama, the most common being the reverse direction.
She carefully approaches and describes the warming-up process, the dramatization and the sharing, in addition to searching for the psychodynamics of the symptoms and conflicts. She assimilates all the theoretical influences and creates a personal way of building her psychotherapeutic skills, obtaining balance between action and word, not the mere cathartic doing, nor the intellectualized talking.
She is a contemporary psychodramatist who emphasizes the importance of individual psychotherapy (in contrast to Moreno), and uses psychodramatic action while taking into account other important advances in this century psychology.
