They Couldn't Run, So They Learned to Fly
Based on a study conducted with chronically ill children, Pediatric Dramatherapy shows how children who are unable to verbalize their feelings or inner conflicts can do so through dramatherapy. The major sources of stress for chronically ill children are examined as they relate to situations within selected stories.
Robert Landy has assembled a collection of essays which encompasses his experience as a dramatherapist. The concept of 'double life' can be seen to be a central theme running through the work - encapsulating the dramatherapist's need to balance the issues of theory, practice and personal growth.The range of essays includes both theory and practice.
This book explores the ways in which dramatherapy techniques and concepts can be applied to supervision, and looks at how supervisions are conducted within the field of dramatherapy. The contributors offer insights into the relationships between supervisor, supervisee and client, and the dramatic roles that unfold during the supervision process.
