Although she left the physical psychodrama stage at age 99, on 19 September, 2016, Zerka lives on in the hearts, minds, and spirits of those of us who were fortunate enough to train with her, to know her, and have her as our Good Enough Mother. Psychodramatists around the globe will celebrate the 100 th anniversary of Zerka’s birth on June 13 th . Although J.L Moreno was the father of psychodrama, no one questions the tremendous contributions that his wife and muse made to the field. Contemporary, classical psychodrama certainly bears the mark of her strong, yet gentle hand.
This past June I had the honor to participate in a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Zerka’s birth in Xiamen, China. As Zerka used to tell us: “Become a psychodramatist and see the world.”
