Integrating the Moreno's heritage

  • René Marineau
Keywords: Psychodrama, Sociodrama, Group therapy, Sociometry, Sociatry, Moreno


The article focuses on a road map for psychodramatists and sociodramatists. First, some historical and epistemological reference markers are underlined in order to make clear some of the challenges and problems in relation to Moreno's theory (or theories), its validation and application. Then, some strategies are proposed so that our own community could fulfill its global mission linked to what Moreno called the sociatric and sociometric revolutions.
