PsychodramaEdit

The psychodrama tradition of psychotherapy, largely founded by Jacob L. Moreno in the 1920's employed playing roles, and acting out scenes in a therapists office or a group therapy setting, as a technique for therapy. By the 30's and 40's under the influence of Roger Caillois and Johan Huizinga the play aspects of psychodrama begin to be emphasized, and by the 60's it is not uncommon to call this play therapy and to emphasize the game playing aspects, especially when used with children.
