Edited by Eva Leveton
When large groups of people become victims of political upheavals, social crises, and natural disasters, it is difficult to allocate appropriate resources to deal with the stress that ensues.
Of the methods employed to address post-traumatic stress syndrome, sociodrama and drama therapy have had a long-standing history of success.
Group therapists and counselors will find this book to be an indispensable resource when counseling patients from trauma-striken groups.
This unique book travels across geographic and cultural boundaries, examining group crises in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the U.S.
Leveton offers cost-effective, small and large group approaches for people suffering from PTSD, socio-political oppression, and other social problems.
The book extends the principles and practices of psychodrama and sociodrama to include music, painting, dance, collage, and ritual.
In essence, this innovative book illustrates the proven effectiveness of sociodrama and drama therapy.
