Tragedy in the potential space. The possibilities of psychodrama in the psychotherapy of the traumatic loss
In my case report I am looking for the answer to the question how psychodrama can help in coping with traumatic loss. I am following the process of psychodrama work in the potential space, the birth of the tragedy and the framing of the experiences in the situation of loss. I will demonstrate my subject through the case of one member of my group. The group for patients suffering from anxiety disorders and depression worked with the protagonist centered approach. I followed the group dynamics parallel to it. The memories and the representations of the trauma were approachable on somatic, emotional and narrative levels by psychodrama. I am trying to demonstrate the healing process of my patient by following the guideline of her protagonist roles. Her dramatic work manifested in the lack of anxiety, in the solution of shame and guilt conflicts and she became more satisfied with her relationships. The victimized and guilt feelings get a new tone in the psychotherapeutic space opened and guarded by the protagonist, the group and the leader. I am following the mutually creative actions during the scenes.

Traditional form – revised material: Minnesota model from the viewpoint of the up-to-date psychological approaches
Mariann Tremkó, András Tóth, Zsolt Fazekas, Éva Golenya, Zsolt Petke
The article presents the newly opened ward of Nyírő Gyula Hospital – OPAI treating alcoholics and pathological gamblers in a newly opened Minnesota department. The article delineates the Minnesota model worked up for addicts based on the philosophy and practice of Alcoholics Anonymous. The model’s specialty is the combination of the theory and practice of both self-help activity and psychotherapy. After summarizing the most common beliefs and prejudices, the authors offer their own experiences, and try to outline a more realistic variation. Briefly overviewing the previous history of the 12-steps programs in Hungary they outline the therapy that has been worked out according to local needs and possibilities. The authors show the points the Minnesota Model, the medical, the bio-psycho-socio-spiritual approach and cognitive-behavior therapy approach have in common. Finally they underline some aspects of the indications that is worth thinking about.

Comment on Vera Higi’s case study: Psychologist on the family couch. Hypnotherapeutic support of a high risk pregnant woman
In this study I present the joint work with a high risk pregnant woman, who was bedridden in her home, during which besides supportive therapy I used hypnotherapy. Before the first meeting the 33 years old woman had already went through three miscarriages of unknown cause, and her fourth child has also been underdeveloped, because of which on the recommendation of the gynaecologist, she asked the help of a psychologist. Because her doctor suggested strict bed rest, only in her home did we have the opportunity to start our mutual work. In the present study foremost I would like to show the dilemmas coming from the special situation from various aspects that I have lived through almost all of the occasions we met. Some of the dilemmas were if the psychological support of such a woman is even possible, what can be undertaken from the point of view of the therapist in a crisis situation, where the doctors cannot judge the completion of the gravidity. In connection with this last dilemma I touch upon the review of the relationship between the somatic status and the therapeutic work, and also upon what are the therapeutic goals, frames and instruments, that could help the support of a pregnant woman in such a special life situation.

Introduction: Mária Koltai
The study by Erzsébet Herman and Iván Berlin was sent to us by Katalin Dobó.
It documents the period that a summary of the outlook of family therapy and psychotherapy was published not in a professional but in a socio-political journal: Valóság (“Reality”, 1981), at the time. The outlook expressed in the study is relevant even today, and it is only a hope even today, that it belongs not only to the thinking of the minority of somatic doctors. One of the authors Erzsébet Herman, who belonged to the handful of psychologically minded doctors of medical diseases in the nine teen sixties and seventies, is not with us anymore. Iván Berlin works as a psychiatrist in Paris.
We print the study in its original form. The text is longer that the norm in Psychotherapy, and it not divided into segments. The references also appear in the form customary in Valóság at the time: at the end of the study, without marking the place in the text.
Mária Koltai wrote the introduction.
