Opposites attract, and in this case they could not be more opposite. However, Jung, who defined the self as emerging inwardly, and Moreno who defined the self as enacting outwardly, can be "creatively combined," to better serve the individual patient, particularly in psychodrama. The contributors of ten articles plus an able introduction by Stephenson (Jungian analyst and psychodrama practitioner) trace the interaction between the two, including a historical account of theater v therapy, psychodrama in the perspective of analytical psychodrama, Jungian psychodrama, reflections on a Jungian psychodrama group, dream enactment, emerging rituals, using psychodrama in analysis, psychodrama and the resolution of transference and non-transference, active imagination in performance, and encounters with Jung and Moreno on "the road of bricks and moss."
