In a clear and accessible style, this book includes discussion of the theory behind psychodrama, as well as the methods used in its practice. E. Roine relates also the topic of psychodrama to the history and practice of the theatre, providing new angles and insights.
It was a pleasure reading and reviewing this book. [T]he first chapter includes a lot of detailed information about theory and theatre which is helpful for a practitioner who does not come from a theatrical backgorund. Thre are many helpful illustrations from her own psychodrama practice in different settings relevant to the theme covered. Her caring and warmth comes through in the way she describes her work with clients. [The book] is rich in its descriptions and its use of material from other therapeutic methods and linking them to psychodrama practice. I would recommend it to anyone interested in psychodrama, and in particular to people with an interest in theatre and its connections to psychodrama.
