Counselling, Psychology & Psychiatry / Art & Music Therapy
This study examines the underlying theatrical underpinning of dramatherapy, which is firmly based on an understanding of processes which are fundamentally theatrical. It approaches the subject systematically, arguing that the hidden psychological mechanisms which make theatre work are the same as those which operate in dramatherapy.
Art and the Development of the Person
Art Therapy - The Person-Centred Way is an enlarged edition of the first book published on person-centred art therapy, and includes many more exercises and ideas. It demonstrates that by bringing the person-centred facilitative approach to images expressed in art form, healing and growth can occur at every level of development.
Music, Meaning and Relationship
By drawing extensively from current literature on music and developmental psychology, music therapy, psychotherapy and music theory, this book encourages music therapists not to compromise the musical process at the heart of their practice, but to use these with authority - the authority that this book seeks to provide.
Group Psychotherapy as Experimental Theatre
This is a comprehensive work which stems from the author's knowledge and experience of psychology, the theatre and psychodrama. It includes discussion of the theory behind psychodrama as well as the methods used in its practice; Roine writes of technical concepts in an accessible style, giving examples from her work in America and Norway.
Principles and Practice for the Use of Singing as a Therapy
Based on Paul Newham's experience as a voice and movement therapist and on his work running the only professional training course in the psychotherapeutic use of singing currently accredited by the RSA, this book explores both the theory and practice behind the use of voice and singing in expressive arts therapy.
Theatre and Healing - Ariadne's Ball of Thread
Jennings presents a 'healing theatre' approach to dramatherapy, showing how it is part of our cultural experience of theatre art, and how it can be used to find a bearable means of facing the beast at the heart of the labyrinth. She maintains that by participating in theatre as well as exploring our past, a new pathway to fulfilment is opened.
