Description - Dramatherapy: Theory and Practice 2 by Sue Jennings
Dramatherapy continues to grow and develop, and is now well-established as a profession and as a therapeutic intervention, especially in Europe and the USA. Dramatherapy: Theory and Pracitce 2 provides both clinician and theatre artist with a stimulating overview of the developments. The international contributors offer a wide variety of perspectives from contrasting theoretical backgrounds, showing how it is possible to integrate a dramatherapeutic approach into many different ways of working towards mental health. They describe the practical application of dramatherapy in many different areas and provide an easily grasped theoretical understanding of the basic principles and concepts involved. In particular, they discuss work with individuals as well as groups, and stress the importance of staff and patient settings. They also look at dramatherapy in relation to playtherapy, and consider the potential of dramatherapy in the community at large.
As a sequel to Sue Jennings's earlier book Dramatherapy: Theory and Practice for Teachers and Clinicians (Routledge, 1987), which has become an established text, this new book will be essential reading for all dramatherapists in training or practice. Professionals in health and social services, education and probation will find it relevant to their practice and thinking, as will theatre performers and directors.
