||Psychodrama and electronic technologies seem unlikely bedfellows. As this paper demonstrates, they are, in fact, made for each other though surprisingly little has been written about their combined potential. Drawing on vignettes and case examples as illustration, John Farnsworth demonstrates how effective supervision can take place in the absence of a physical psychodrama stage. He describes the way in which he uses all aspects of the psychodrama method via email, phone, digital and online communications, to create warm, functional working relationships. Psychodramatists are invited to reflect on the way that psychodrama can and will be used in the emerging vibrant electronic worlds of the future.

||My desire to write this article was driven by two issues in my mind. Firstly, I had a desire to get to know more thoroughly Ailsa, the client featured in this article who is diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I perceived that writing was one way I could achieve this. By 'more thoroughly' I mean that I wanted to elucidate in a written form how her life events were connected to and influenced the growth of particular aspects of these disorders. Secondly, I wanted to integrate concepts from various psychological or psychiatric perspectives with my thinking as a psychodramatist.
