Acting For Real : Drama Therapy Process, Technique, And Performance, Hardback Book

Acting For Real : Drama Therapy Process, Technique, And Performance Hardback


This second edition takes the reader further into the heart of using drama for healing.

A pioneer and leading trainer in the field, Dr. Emunah offers an expanded understanding of her Integrative Five Phase model, a foundational approach that embraces the wide spectrum of possibilities within the playing field of drama therapy in a progressive framework that accentuates emotional expression/containment, relationship, and perspective.

Grounded by compassionate clinical examples, the book offers tools for action-oriented treatment, embodied therapeutic interventions, and creatively engaging a wide variety of clients. This lively and comprehensive text contains over 120 techniques, categorized by phases in the session and treatment series, and subcategorized by therapeutic objective, as well as numerous ideas and guidelines for drama therapists and other practitioners.

Process-oriented drama therapy (group and individual) as well as performance-oriented forms are described in vivid detail.

New to the second edition is an exploration of drama therapy outside of the clinical arena, including dramatic methods in family life and parenting, and drama therapy geared toward social change.
