The following links are to articles, web pages, notes and emails I have written, and am writing. Some are on psychology, psychodrama, psychotherapy or art, others about the Internet, but together they are about the psyche online – the “psyber” world. Some items are mere fragments, and some are the product of the hardest writing work I have ever done. The items go back to the early 1990’s and I’m adding items in 2022 (and have more planned!) Feedback appreciated by email. Walter Logeman

Therapeutic intimacy differs markedly from the experiences of intimacy in ordinary life, it is proscribed, contained and for a specific purpose. In a sense it is artificial yet genuine for all that. Can therapeutic intimacy happen in cyberspace?

Psychodrama, the Psyche & Couple Therapy
The Value of Sociodrama in Psychodramatic Couple Therapy Training. Published in the AANZPA Journal 2021.
This article focuses on the value of sociodrama in the training of psychodramatic couple therapists. The author describes the way in which a sociodramatic approach is employed to bring to life a ‘sociodramatic couple’, who later become the focus of training sessions in which the trainer and trainees explore the effectiveness of various interventions in couple therapy practice. Drawing on the illustrative material, the author reflects on the value of sociodrama in the development of the trainees, at both conscious and unconscious levels, and raises the possibility of applying a sociodramatic approach to training in related fields, such as individual therapy, family therapy and organisational development.
Encounter The Heart of Psychodramatic Couple Therapy Published in the AANZPA Journal 2019
This article is concerned with the application of psychodrama principles and practices to couple therapy. In particular, it explores Moreno’s philosophy of encounter, that meeting of two, ‘face to face and eye to eye’, which lies at the heart of psychodramatic couple therapy. Drawing on illustrative material, the author shows the way in which the psychodrama structure of warm up, action and sharing apply in a couple therapy session, with the encounter presenting as the action phase. He also describes the psychodramatic techniques of doubling, mirroring and role reversal as they are used to facilitate the encounter

Moreno’s Scientific Methodology. (pdf) A monograph exploring the place of science in Moreno’s work and the place of his work in science. In draft form and the basis for a shorter article published in 2015:
Moreno’s Scientific Methodology: By, of and for the People Published in the AANZPA Journal 2015. This paper is an exposition of the scientific methodology developed by Jacob Levy Moreno. It is based on an extensive reading of his writing and the discovery that the heart of his philosophy includes a research paradigm that incorporates human spontaneity and unpredictability. Six principles have been identified and formed into a working description so that research may be by the people, of the people, and for the people. The paper invites a greater consciousness of this research methodology. The author hopes that practitioners of psychodramatic methods will be encouraged to apply it in their work.

Psyberspace: Psychology + Cyberspace
Archetypes of Cyberspace — an Essay
The Internet changes everything. Walter Logeman in this essay proposes ‘everything’ includes the psyche. The essay begins with an orientation to cyberspace. One novel idea follows another, the first is that cyberspace precedes the Internet. The essay uses the imaginal approach C.G. Jung and archetypal psychology. The recognition of archetypal structures of the psyche have a direct influence on clinical psychotherapy.
Cyberspace is in the position the wilds of nature were once in, it took poets, pioneers, visionaries and activists enable us all to see that untouched nature had value.
Stuff that needs editing. Psyberspace is the title of a book I plan to write. It will take a while, its a big project. I am currently editing everything I have on this subject but am leaving this file here for the sake of posterity! Though it incorporated material written years before this is a relatively complete early draft.
