The Handbook of Dramatherapy brings together five authors who have considerable experience working in clinical, artistic and educational fields to provide a fascinating introduction to the major contrasting approaches to dramatherapy. Individually they look at the developmental approach, the use of role theory, the ideas of ``the theatre of expression'' and ``the theatre of healing'', and an integrated model of dramatherapy. Each author explains the theoretical basis of the approach, shows how it works in practice in a particular situation and suggests how it might be adapted to other settings. Supporting chapters describe and discuss the history and development of the dramatherapy movement; the differences between dramatherapy and psychodrama; the relationship with play therapy; the relationship with the theatre; assessment and evaluation techniques; and how to develop research appropriate to dramatherapy.
