Doctoral Dissertation, University of California, Berkeley, 1995 ABSTRACT: Jacob Moreno, MD (1889-1974) is known today as the founder of psychodrama, which he defined as "the science which explores the 'truth' by dramatic methods." This dissertation investigates Moreno primarily as a theatre artist. It starts with a philosophical analysis of the concepts of acting, improvisation and spontaneity and then consolidates the elements of Moreno's theory of the nature and function of theatre, which are dispersed throughout his writings and have never been thoroughly collected in one place. It also examines how Moreno discovered the healing power of drama while he directed his Theatre of Spontaneity in Vienna 1920s and in New York 1930s. The appendix contains Moreno's earliest theatrical text, The Godhead as Comedian, translated for the first time in its entirety from the 1919 German edition. (325 pages, including 19 p. of German and English references, chronology) www.scheiffele.com

About the Author:

Dr. Eberhard Scheiffele, PhD, TEP, RDT, is a theatre artist, psychotherapist, scholar, and award-winning psychodramatist. For 2005-06 he was awarded a prestigious Fulbright Scholar grant for teaching in the Psychology Department at Gumanitarni University in Ekaterinburg, Russia. His doctoral dissertation "The Theatre of Truth", written at the University of California, Berkeley, focused on Jacob Moreno's theatre of spontaneity and psychodrama. He is certified as Trainer, Educator, Practitioner (TEP) by the American Board of Examiners in Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychotherapy, and he is a Registered Drama Therapist (RDT). In 2005 he received the Innovator's Award from the American Society of Group Psychotherapy and Psychodrama (ASGPP), and in 2006 he was awarded the status of Fellow. While his first love remains acting, his experience also includes working in private practice and for agencies as a psychotherapist for children, adolescents, and adults. He has over 15 years of teaching experience in mathematics, philosophy, theatre arts, and psychology. His research and experiential trainings have been presented at universities and regional, national, and international conferences in theatre and psychotherapy all over the United States, Canada, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Austria, Senegal (West Africa), and many parts of Russia. He is the artistic director of the Center for Psychodrama, Creativity, and International Encounter of the Volkshochschule Wangen im Allgäu, Germany. His approach is sought out because of his warmth, passion, and humor. His publications have appeared in many academic, peer-reviewed journals in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Ukraine, and Russia. He is on the editorial board of Psychodrama and Modern Psychotherapy, the leading Russian language journal. Eberhard can be reached through his website www.scheiffele.com
