Movement and Drama in Therapy
A Holistic Approach 2nd Edition
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This classic book explores the role of drama, movement and music in therapy. It clearly explains the fundamental principles of movement and, with detailed use of case studies, its application in different therapeutic situations - in groups, with individuals, and with people with learning, physical or psychological difficulties. It is an invaluable resource for those experienced in therapy who desire to understand movement, for those trained in movement, who seek to apply what they have learned in the therapeutic and other remedial ways, and as an introduction to both movement and therapy for those in other disciplines.
'[Readers] may find, in these pages, a theory connecting the inner world with practical daily living... I wish this book every success. I hope it will reach many people and light sparks, answer quests, strengthen endeavour and broaden horizons.' - from the Foreword'...an invaluable resource for those experienced in therapy who desire to understand movement, those trained in movement, who seek to apply what they have learned in the therapeutic and other remedial ways, and as an introduction to both movement and therapy for those in other disciplines.'- Sportdokumentation
