Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(2), 139. Reviews the book, Psychodrama for the timid clinician by Eva Leveton (1977). This book provides a clear, lively, and interesting discussion of psychodramatic techniques. Leveton expands Moreno's original concept of psychodrama to include several of her own ideas for role playing as well as contributions from Satir, Perls, and others. Her book is replete with examples from different settings and varying situations, and one appreciates the openness of her accompanying personal perceptions and comments. As an educational text, the book has some limitations. The author admittedly does not try to provide a rigorously conceptualized framework, as she decided “to leave the theorizing to others for the time being. For academic purposes, this book can be used as a supplement to other basic texts. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
