Me, I, You and All of Us

Jacob Moreno’s theory of personality development posits that human beings develop by moving from the undifferentiated Matrix of All Identity at birth, through the stages of Mirroring and Doubling, and culminate in the ability to Role Reverse. When individuals emerge from the Matrix of All Identity, they have come to know where they begin and where they end. This paper explores the concept of the Matrix of All Identity as a working framework for clinical practice, including its relationship to attachment theory, with a view to identifying effective interventions.
