Das Ziel ist im Weg: Störungsverständnis und Therapieprozess by Michael Schacht

By Michael Schacht

Seit den Arbeiten von J. L. Moreno hat sich das Psychodrama stetig weiterentwickelt. Dennoch fehlt, so die those des Autors, eine aktuellen Ansprüchen genügende genuin psychodramatische Therapietheorie. Er entwickelt in diesem Buch ein zeitgemäßes Störungsverständnis sowie ein Modell therapeutischer Prozesse, um daraus spezifische Therapiestrategien abzuleiten. Diese werden an vielen Fallbeispielen erläutert. Verfahrensübergreifend zeigt der Verfasser Verbindungen zu aktuellen psychotherapeutischen Ansätzen auf. Er betont die Integrationskraft des Psychodramas, das in der aktuellen Therapielandschaft spezifische Akzente setzen kann.
So ist das Buch nicht nur für PsychodramatikerInnen von Interesse, sondern für alle in beraterischen und therapeutischen Berufsfeldern Tätigen, die sich über aktuelle Entwicklungen jenseits des eigenen verfahrensspezifischen Tellerrands informieren möchten und Hilfen für ihre praktische Arbeit suchen.

"Mit den hier vorgestellten Modellen [liegt] eine bedeutsame Erweiterung der theoretischen Grundlagen des Psychodramas vor, wie sie nach Moreno nicht mehr erfolgt ist." ÖAGG
