An early pioneer of UK dramatherapy, Phil Jones sees it as the facilitation of change through drama processes, ‘The client seeks to achieve a new relationship towards the problems or life experiences they bring to therapy. The aim is to find in this new relationship, resolution, relief, a new understanding or changed ways of functioning.’ (1996, p6)
Mandy Carr will draw on dramatherapy theory and clinical vignettes in order to explore:
- What is dramatherapy and what is it not? …. Similarities and differences between dramatherapy and therapeutic or educational applications of drama
- What are the different models of dramatherapy? … a brief look at some of the diverse approaches to this work in the UK and USA
- What is it like to experience dramatherapy? … a creative introduction to embodiment, projection and role (EPR), a dramatherapy model developed by Sue Jennings. Participants will be invited to take part in a range of activities and finally to reflect upon their relevance within counselling and psychotherapy contexts.
