Theory and Practice of Action and Drama Techniques / Edition 1by Leni Verhofstadt-Deneve, Leni Verhofstadt-DeNeve
Pub. Date: 12/01/1999
Publisher: Kingsley, Jessica Publishers
Taking an existential - dialectical approach to developmental psychology, Leni Verhofstadt-DenŠve develops a personality model and shows how it can be applied in practice through psychodrama, videofeedback and creative playtherapy. In the first section of the book she defines her approach in philosophical and clinical terms: in the second, more practically oriented, section she explains how psychodramatic principles can be applied when working therapeutically with groups and individuals. She focuses particularly on the treatment of children and adolescents suffering from developmental disorders, drug addiction and self-esteem problems. Illustrated with clinical examples from the author's experience, the book presents methods for psychiatrists and therapists to use in their practice, and challenges them to re-examine their approaches to psychotherapy.
