Hucker, Neil Psychotherapist in Search of a Psychodrama Stage Projection Spaces As Action Stages (PDF, 73.9 KB) Journal 18 December 2009 This paper elaborates six mental projection spaces of the mind (Hucker, 2006) that can be viewed as psychodramatic action stages, upon which the content of the imagination can be projected, differentially concretised and modifications of the psychodrama method applied. The application of these projection spaces will be illustrated via the description of an individual psychotherapy session. In this session, the mental projection spaces are worked with as if the therapy was being enacted psychodramatically on a psychodrama stage. 9 2009-12

Hucker, Neil The Social Atom Diagram Expanded (PDF, 251.6 KB) Journal 8 December 1999 The article presents an expanded three-dimensional representation of the social atom diagram, which integrates a record of the social atom, the cultural atom, and the individual's sociometry. The tree-like shape of the representation allows a dynamic recycling flow of life. The use of the visual representation in a clinical setting is described. The author asserts that such representation offers him a flexible structure within which to explore the client's social atom movements in a more interactive manner. 2 1999-12

Hucker, Neil Movie Review: Lars and the Real Girl (PDF, 1.2 MB) Journal 18 December 2009 Lars and the Real Girl Directed by Craig Gillespie Reviewed by Neil Hucker. When I first saw this film title and read a brief review I was cautious. I thought maybe this was just a new soft porn take on men and blow up dolls! I put off even considering seeing it, until a friend recommended it. To my great surprise, it turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable film without any of the recent postmodernist darkness and pessimism that frequently accompanies films. 25 2009-12
Hucker, Neil Book Review: The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science (Revised Edition) (PDF, 109.6 KB) Journal 20 December 2011 When I first heard the title of this book last year I immediately thought of J.L. Moreno's (1978) Canon of Creativity, that circular/spiral relationship between the conserve and spontaneous new role development. With my underlying biological orientation as a psychiatrist I am always on the lookout for developing perspectives on the foundational biological processes of spontaneity, creativity and role development. How does the brain work? And how does it accommodate on going progressive change that facilitates continuous development of roles and the self ? 30 2011-12
