Children and adolescents are a large and important group of clients in dramatherapy, which is a mode of treatment often particularly well suited to their needs. This book looks at the detailed application of dramatherapy, using a wide variety of dramatherapy and drama methods and processes. It addresses areas of major concern in current practice and in particular discusses the need for greater awareness about social responsibility as well as therapeutic intervention. The contributors all have extensive experience in child and adolescent direct work and write from an international perspective. Individual chapters discuss role play, symbolic enactment of trauma, issues of gender and ethnicity, peer interaction, and archetypes in assessment and therapy. They include many practical suggestions and case material, set in a sound theoretical context.
