The Healing Drama: Psychodrama and Dramatherapy with Abused Children

by Anne Bannister - £24.99  Free Association Books (1997)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781853433832 | ISBN 10: 1853433837

The Healing Drama sets out the main theoretical and practical approaches of the therapoeutic techniques using the medium of drama to work specifically with abused children. It discusses how children use play as a method of investigation and rehearsing for reality and illustrates how role-play is a means of discovering a child's intellectual and emotional development. It reveals how children develop particular responses and behaviour patterns as a result of being abused, with 'victim' and 'controlling' behaviour being the most common. There are chapters on working with children of different ages, gender, race and culture, and on the practicalities of therapeutic work. The book ends with a review of some of the research on the therapeutic work with children using psychodrama and dramatherapy.
