Research Interests

My main area of interest is psychodrama. There is still something to discover in life and work of its founder Jacob Levy Moreno, especially in the early Austrian period around 1896-1925. In an intercultural context I am eager to know how psychodrama fits in other cultures. To support this field I am maintaining the international psychodrama bibliography and

I am working with colleagues in a expert advisory council for psychotherapy research. We are preparing psychotherapist development and training as well as psychodrama effectiveness research.
