Listen

Guest: Jonathan Moreno

[From the Radio Times archive] In this hour of Radio Times, JONATHAN MORENO discusses his new book Impromptu Man: J.L. Moreno and the Origins of Psychodrama, Encounter Culture, and the Social Network. His book examines the contributions of his father – J.L Moreno – to psychiatry and psychology and the role he played in the creation of “psychodrama”, the combination of therapy and theater and “sociometry,” the study of social relationships. He’ll talk about his father’s life and work and how it even laid the foundation for contemporary social-network analysis. Marty spoke with him last year.
