We are thrilled to announce the book publication by Dr. Scott Giacomucci titled “Social Work, Sociometry, & Psychodrama: Experiential Approaches for Group Therapists, Community Leaders, & Social Workers“.
The full open-access ebook is freely available here!
This is the first book to comprehensively outline the intersections between the fields of social work, sociometry, and psychodrama. Sections include history, philosophy, theory, teaching/supervision, and practice with individuals, groups, and communities. Special chapters are dedicated to trauma, neurobiology, research, and the strength-based approach. To my professional friends who want to learn more, consider joining us for our upcoming CEU events that will focus on teaching content from the book.
I intentionally wrote the book in a way that would be attractive for a large audience including psychodramatists, scholars/researchers, practitioners, activists, educators, supervisors, and creative arts therapists. The chapters on practice include many examples of how to use experiential processes in a trauma-informed way within diverse group settings.
The open-access eBook will be available for free to anyone on the publisher’s website. As an academic book, it will also be indexed in academic databases for students, professors, and researchers (through your university subscriptions). Otherwise, it will be available for softback or hardback purchase through the publisher (Springer Nature) and on Amazon. If you found the book useful, it would be incredibly helpful to the book’s visibility if you wrote an honest Amazon review about the book.
