Roger Grainger shows how drama therapy itself is an effective treatment for depression and schizophrenia, having a measurable effect on thought disorder. He looks at the specific relationship between rational thought and artistic experience which allows the second to act as the mediator of the first. The book is in two parts, and examines the therapeutic origins of theatre and the part played by drama in psychological development. Also, the drama therapy experience is discussed, drawing material from case studies to show how drama therapy is used with people diagnozed as schizophrenic or as depressed. The ways the therapy is set up, the people involved, actual sessions and the measurable results displays the connection between drama therapy and ritual, a connection to which the author suggests, it owes its healing power.

Book Description JESSICA KINGSLEY PUBLISHERS, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. The author shows how drama therapy draws on both drama and ritual. He argues that personal construct theory provides a hermeneutically useful approach to the study of drama therapy. He shows that drama therapy itself is an effective treatment for depression and schizophrenia, having a measurable effect on thought disorder; he thus tries to be as definite as possible about a subject which resists the 'scientific' apporach, and he is concerned not only to think rationally about drama therapy, but to examine the specific relationship between rational thought and artistic experience which allows the second to act as the mediator of the first.In Part One, the author investigates the therapeutic origins of theatre before moving on to the part played by drama in psychological maturation, leading to a discussion of depression, thought disorder and schizophrenia and the role of drama therapy in their treatment.Part Two examines the drama therapy experience and the ways in which the therapeutic possiblities of drama can be harnessed, both in improvised dramatic episodes and in theatre games, to achieve a wide range of therapeutic goals.
