Jonathan D. Moreno - Impromptu Man: J.L. Moreno and the Origins of Psychodrama, Encounter Culture, and the Social Network
Politics and Prose, Sunday, November 16 at 5pm
Look into the origins of the Encounter groups of the 1960s, improv theater, and today’s digital social media and you’ll find the ideas of the Viennese psychiatrist, J. L. Moreno (1889 – 1974). In this hybrid biography and cultural history, Moreno’s son, a University of Pennsylvania professor, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, and author of Mind wars, presents his father’s thinking on sociometry, psychodrama, and group psychotherapy, which he introduced to America.
