Mirror, like the double and role reversal, moreniano is a concept that arises from the creation of self from the roles that are structured in the identity matrix walking five stages (Ver matriz de identidad).

Undifferentiated total matrix to which the function will double to total differential phase when the gap between fantasy and reality appears belongs, allowing the developing child, the first signs of differentiation between self, imaginary noyo of concrete reality, what will emerge with the ability to dream.

In this second stage of the identity matrix “the child will focus on each other and different from each other” (Moreno, Psychodrama V.I,19).

In the third stage “It separated from the continuity of experience”, es decir, will begin to differentiate a “other” external all other.

In the fourth stage “It will be located on the other side and actively play its role”. and He will outline other with clarity and “actively get in their role” will open the mirror technique to understand it and make it your own. This game will repeat with all beings that constitute their world even with the image of himself.

It will continue to use this technique throughout his life above all that which is unknown and difficult to understand and grasp, in a continuous recognition of self and others.

From these observations Moreno psychodrama created for therapeutic work the mirror technique.

The mirror technique psychodrama is a valuable technique that can be played in various ways:

1) Set the protagonist in the audience a yoauxiliar, who has carefully studied their actions, It depicted on stage.

2) A yoauxiliar placed on stage in front of the protagonist repeated in a mirror image of their body attitude. their movements and attitudes.

3) Statically the yoauxiliar shows how in an instant the stage or dynamically figure represents the totality of a scene in motion.

4) The use of videotape, that saves the difficulty of exact reproduction by the yoauxiliar, It is a valuable resource of this technique.

Sometimes it is preferred rather than a faithful representation of an accentuation of certain aspects that can even be up to the hype (see cartoon).

It is one of the angular concepts for the theory of roles and Anthropology Link.

Man comes into the world with a wealth of freedom and spontaneity, which they are the sources of their creative possibilities (see creativity), For this very reason when Moreno speaks of spontaneity, in his writings, refers to the words “spontaneously” to emphasize this feature source. For Moreno could not have project, there could be no link voltage integration, Despite all the difficulties, without these sources.

This spontaneous availability of man, describes his innate ability lúdrica, every human being plays led by his basic vital boost in their ways “hambre de actos” (Ver hambre de actos) Y “hambre de transformación” (Ver hambre de transformación).

Work in psychotherapy involves permanently meet the desires of man, and between the transformation, growth and lifting; whereby the constant reading of these sources and these and these availabilities, They are fundamental for the psychodrama task elmentos.

For this very reason when Moreno care of spontaneity, It also deals with his failure, It manifested in the stagnation of what he calls: “cultural preserves” (See cultural preserves). but fundamentally, as a careful observer and researcher at the scene, describes gradients spontaneity, as they appear in the dramatic setting.

It also notes carefully, each of the steps of his ascent towards creativity achieved.

Moreno places the most basic level of spontaneity in impulsivity (View performance) and defines its maximum level “the ability to respond appropriately (see adequacy) to a stimulus “nuevo” as well as “the ability to respond in a new properly, an old stimulus”.

When Moreno hath given observation, the psychodramatist must make to read the quantum of spontaneity in the scene itself, speaks of spontaneous development as:

1) dramatic quality (See dramatic quality).

2) dramatic originality (See dramatic originality).

3) dramatic property (See dramatic property).

This is the name the configuration sociométrica on the sociogram when a member is elected for five or more members of the study group.

So it is called the time periods in which methodologically subdivide psychodrama sessions, sociodrama, role playing game, y psychodrama.

These sessions consist of three stages: caldeamiento, dramatization, comments. (see warming, dramatization and comments).

It is the name by which it distinguishes one type of skit applied specifically to the resolution of conflicts over ethnic clashes, racial and cultural, within a single operating group.
