Abstract: How is dramatherapy practised? What does research reveal about how dramatherapy offers therapeutic change? This book examines the many ways clients and therapists explore the therapeutic possibilities of drama. Whilst the first volume combined theory, practice and research in the field, this second volume concentrates on clinical material from a range of contexts, with thorough description and analysis of therapeutic work. Bringing together international contributors, chapters explore work with various client groups in an array of contexts, including: work with clients with learning disabilities, dementia, HIV and cancer work with children, adults, older adults, families and women's groups contexts including the justice system, education, family therapy and neurorehabilitation. Drama as Therapy Volume 2: Clinical Work and Research into Practice is not only a welcome companion to the first volume, but also is an important stand alone work which will be of great interest to all those studying, practicing or with an interest in dramatherapy.
