Psychodrama a la Moreno Institute

This presentation features a video of a psychodrama session directed by John Nolte as the method was taught by Dr. J. L. Moreno and Zerka T. Moreno at the Moreno Institute in the 1960s and 1970s. The drama was videoed at a training workshop of the National Psychodrama Training Center. John will then process the drama, discussing his thoughts and explaining the decisions he made during the drama. Following that, he will take questions and comments from the workshop participants.
