This accessible and comprehensive book shows the importance of theater as a healing experience. The book explains the basic theory and practice of dramatherapy, exploring the subject with an awareness of the place of dramatic expression as a natural part of life. It shows how dramatherapy is of relevance to everyone, exploring the use of drama in different life stages and during different experiences.
