Senior sociodrama trainers from the United Kingdom, Ron Weiner, Di Adderley and Kate Kirk have collated an impressive collection of 34 articles on the history and development of sociodrama and its theory, practice and application, through the lens of four key themes: So What is Sociodrama? (Theory and Practice), Sociodrama in Cross Cultural Work, Sociodrama in Organisations and Sociodrama in Education and Training. The editors succeed in their goal of providing a “wide ranging collection of views on the current debate what is Sociodrama?” with articles gathered from practitioners and trainers living and working in 13 countries from all four corners of the globe. Each contributing author works at the cutting edge of sociodramatic development in their own country and has an impressive background of teaching and practice. There is a variety of different approaches, with some articles predominantly theoretical, some historical in flavour, some sociological and others case study centred.
