(3) An exploration issues of theory building in the health care professions, an identification of important components of theoretical model formulation and the establishment of validity; (4) A researched and subject validated comparative analysis in which pivotal concepts, techniques, and applications are gleaned from each of the 16 frames and commonalities formulated into a fundamental conceptualization of the current state of drama therapy in North America; (5) A glossary of key concepts utilized by the approaches along with a subject index.
