Psychology through Clinical Role Playing
- stock arriving soon
Role-playing has long been a widely accepted modality since it was introduced by J. L. Moreno about half a century ago. Now this important volume of theory and technique for the first time systematizes and broadens the scope of role-playing and demonstrates how it can be utilized as a primary approach through a single treatment session or an entire course of treatment. Psychotherapy Through Clinical Role Playing encompasses psychodramatic procedures, behavioral research interventions, and other action-oriented methods, The varied chapters cover the emergence of clinical role playing as a form of therapy; basic principles and clinical applications of the increasingly influential behavior simulation model; the structure of the clinical role-playing session; basic and situational role-playing techniques; and future directions of this approach. The richly detailed case illustrations present clinical role-playing sessions in the contexts of group psychotherapy, family therapy, and individual treatment. Psychotherapy Through Clinical Role Playing is a highly practical, sharply focused guide for effective therapeutic interventions that will be useful to individual, marital, family, and group therapists. Its detailed analysis of theory and technique provides both training text for graduate students and a clinical guide for the many practitioners who use clinical role-playing in treatment even though they do not consider themselves as psychodramatists.
