Psychodrama and other action methods are especially helpful in the treatment of the classic eating disorders as well as dieting struggles, body dissatisfaction and associated issues of fear, sadness, silence and shame. This book provides clinicians with sound theoretical information, practical treatment guidelines and a wealth of clinically-tested action structures and interventions. The authors describe how they have introduced action methods to work with a diverse range of clients, and suggest ways in which psychodrama practitioners, experiential therapists and others may integrate these methods into their practice. Offering fresh ideas for tailoring psychodramatic standards such as The Living Newspaper, Magic Shop and the Social Atom to eating disorder issues, they provide extensive examples of psychodrama interventions - classic and specially adapted for eating disorders - for both the experienced practitioner and those new to experiential therapies. They also explain how psychodrama can be used in combination with other expressive, holistic and complementary approaches, including family constellations, music, art, imagery, ritual, Five Element Acupuncture, yoga, Reiki and other energy work. This pioneering book is essential reading for practitioners and students of psychodrama, drama therapy, experiential psychotherapy, cognitive and expressive arts therapies and mental health professionals, as well as professionals interested in complementary health modalities.

As an emerging psychotherapeutic discipline, drama therapy has been gaining global attention over the last decade for its demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of child and adolescent populations. However, despite this attention and despite the current turbulent state of the world and the increasing population of disturbed and at-risk children, the field of drama therapy has so far lacked a standard text. Weber and Haen’s book fills this need, providing a core text for graduate students and established professionals alike. Clinical Applications of Drama Therapy in Child and Adolescent Treatment is guided by theory, but firmly rooted in practice, providing a survey of the many different possibilities and techniques for incorporating drama therapy within child and adolescent therapy. More than merely a survey of the existing literature on drama therapy, this text represents a true expansion of the field: one which articulates the breadth of possibilities and applications for drama therapy in the larger context of psychotherapy.

This book explores the exciting areas of overlap between psychodrama and other therapeutic schools and presents opportunities for their creative interaction and integration. Psychodramatists, to varying degrees, integrate the ideas and philosophies of other forms of psychotherapy into their clinical practice. Similarly, other therapists make use of the action methods of psychodrama. This edited volume contains contributions from a variety of dual-trained therapists qualified in psychodrama and trained in another therapeutic modality, including dramatherapy, occupational therapy, art therapy, family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and more. Each chapter considers a different model of interaction and integration between therapeutic schools and explains how they can enhance and enrich a therapist's professional practice. In doing so, this book reveals an understanding of the core commonalities of the therapeutic process. With clinical case studies illustrating enhanced practice through creative interaction of the therapeutic schools, this book will be of interest to psychodramatists and all other therapists who integrate action techniques into their clinical practice.

In a world where natural, social and political disasters are a daily reality, the therapist is increasingly called upon to find rapid and effective methods of treating the survivors of trauma, including sexual abuse, torture, war-related trauma, addiction, depression and bereavement. The contributors to this book provide persuasive evidence of how psychodrama can safely be used to create paths of change for even the most severe traumatization and they also discuss the possible transmission of trauma patterns across generations. Research following World War II, neurobiological studies and other recent research into PTSD has shown that many trauma symptoms are unconscious, non-verbal, right-brained experiences which cannot be accessed through talk therapy. Psychodrama creates a place to act out unprocessed trauma within the containment of therapy, in order to stop the obsessive repetition of the past.Psychodrama with Trauma Survivors documents the impact of trauma and explores the development of treatment, providing integrated models of experiential treatment for clinicians to use. It is an invaluable resource for those interested in psychodrama and those working with trauma survivors.

Imaginative role playing is a natural process that can be utilized in adulthood as a recreational form, in addition to its applications in educational and therapeutic contexts. In The Art of Play, Adam and Allee Blatner present a systematic method for developing skills in improvisational play. They discuss the benefits and psychodynamics of this innate channel of vitality, and offer critical examinations of the commonly held beliefs that inhibit the playful impulse. Vignettes of the authors' sessions and an extensive bibliography highlight the text. The Art of Play presents a context for exploration that is free from psychological analysis or pressures to perform competitively. Scenes from the participants' imaginations are enacted using psychodramatic techniques -- a method that serves as a valuable tool for promoting playfulness between couples, with families, among friends, and in a variety of group activities. As a result, The Art of Play is an important resource for professionals in many fields, including psychotherapy, theater arts, group dynamics, recreation, gerontology, and education. "The book is logically organized, easy to read, and based on scientific fact. Since elements of play offer an approach to many things, virtually every reader will find something interesting and useful.... it is so much fun, caution is urged: reading this could be habit-forming " -- American Association for Therapeutic Humor

An increasing number of people are engaging in therapy. As a consequence there is a growing debate about the benefits of therapy and its place in global society. In this exciting and engaging new text Peter Morrall argues that therapy should be treated with healthy scepticism and provides a compelling, contemporary, and controversial argument as to how we should construct a sceptical view. In an engaging style akin to authors such as Oliver Burkeman, Stan Ferudi and Alain de Botton, the author offers a sociology of psychotherapy as well as placing sociology in therapy. The author explores the links between therapy and science, therapy and power, therapy and reality, madness and normality, and personal misery and the values of global society. The author asks questions about therapy and the "therapy culture" of the modern day. Is therapy dysfunctional, arrogant, selfish, abusive, infectious, insane and deceitful? The author illustrates different aspects of therapy using a troubled character called Heather, who undergoes therapy and features in vignettes throughout the book. This innovative, engaging, and compelling analysis of therapy is a wake-up call about therapy. It is essential reading for anyone interested in psychotherapy, counselling, sociology or the human condition.
