He comments that dramatherapy and dance/movement therapy both use embodiment and he also mentions other arts therapies such as poetry therapy and art therapy which include aspects of embodiment that may be particularly relevant for sexual abuse survivors.

He had been influenced by his older contemporary Freud, but Moreno described his own work as ‘putting the humour back into psychiatry’. Marx also influenced him and Moreno intended his kind of psychiatry, which he named psychodrama, to include ‘the whole of mankind’. It is interesting that he first discovered psychodrama by watching children playing in the public gardens of Vienna.
