Routledge International Handbook of Dramatherapy is the first book of its kind to bring together leading professionals and academics from around the world to discuss their practice from a truly international perspective. Dramatherapy has developed as a profession during the latter half of the twentieth century. Now, we are beginning to see its universal reach across the globe in a range of different and diverse approaches. From Australia, to Korea to the Middle East and Africa through Europe and into North & South America dramatherapists are developing a range of working practices using the curative power of drama within a therapeutic context to work with diverse and wide ranging populations. Using traditional texts in the Indian sub-continent, healing performances in the Cameroon, supporting conflict in Israel and Palestine, through traditional Comedic theatre in Italy, to adolescents in schools and adults with mental ill health, this handbook covers a range of topics that shows the breadth, depth and strength of dramatherapy as a developing and maturing profession. It is divided into four main sections that look at the current international: Developments in dramatherapy Theoretical approaches Specific practice New and innovative approaches Offering insights on embodiment, shamanism, anthropology and cognitive approaches coupled with a range of creative, theatrical and therapeutic methods, this ground breaking book is the first congruent analysis of the profession. It will appeal to a wide and diverse international community of educators, academics, practitioners, students, training schools and professionals within the arts, arts education and arts therapies communities. Additionally it will be of benefit to teachers and departments in charge of pastoral and social care within schools and colleges.

How is dramatherapy practised? What does research reveal about how dramatherapy offers therapeutic change? This book examines the many ways clients and therapists explore the therapeutic possibilities of drama.

Bringing together international contributors, chapters explore work with various client groups in an array of contexts, including: work with clients with learning disabilities, dementia, HIV and cancer work with children, adults, older adults, families and women's groups contexts including the justice system, education, family therapy and neurorehabilitation. Drama as Therapy Volume 2: Clinical Work and Research into Practice is not only a welcome companion to the first volume, but also is an important stand alone work which will be of great interest to all those studying, practicing or with an interest in dramatherapy.

This book examines how drama therapists conceptualize and respond to relational and systemic trauma across systems of care including mental health clinics, schools, and communities burdened by historical and current wounds. The chapters in this book offer drama therapists compelling examples of emerging models of trauma-informed drama therapy, as well as offering experienced practitioners the opportunity to question the assumptions made by prevailing paradigms that underlie our practice. The introductory chapters review the influence and history of trauma theory and treatment on drama therapy, followed by two sections: The first presents readers with seven emerging approaches and the second section offers detailed applications to specific populations, ending with a meta-analysis of drama therapy in the treatment of trauma. This ground-breaking book will also be useful for creative arts therapists, mental health professionals, educators, students and for many others interested in the role of the drama and performance in the treatment of trauma.

Dramatherapy is increasingly being used in schools and educational establishments as a way of supporting young people’s emotional needs. This book examines the space between drama education and Dramatherapy exploring the questions: Does a therapist teach? When does the role of the drama teacher border on that of therapist? How do these two professions see and understand each other and the roles they play? In Drama Education and Dramatherapy, Clive Holmwood draws on his experience as a Dramatherapist and examines the history of drama education and Dramatherapy, exploring the social, political, therapeutic and artistic influences that have impacted these two professions over the last century. He also discusses how these fields are intrinsically linked and examines the liminal qualities betwixt and between them. The book considers two specific case studies, from the therapist's and teacher's perspectives discussing what happens in the drama class and therapy space including how the dramatic form is understood, explored and expressed both educationally and therapeutically. The ‘them and us’ mentality, which often exists in two different professions that share a common origin is also explored. The book contemplates how teachers and Dramatherapists can work collaboratively in the future, bringing down barriers that exist between them and beginning a working dialogue that will ultimately and holistically support the children and young people they all work with. This book will be of interest to those involved in using drama in an educational or therapeutic context, including: drama teachers, arts therapists, teachers of arts therapy and researchers within wider arts, applied arts and educational faculties within colleges and universities.

Hermeneutik : Wahrheit und Methode. - 1. Grundzüge einer philosophischen Hermeneutik. Bd. 1

English summary: Gadamer's main work, Truth and Method, will be published in 2010, exactly 50 years after the first edition, in a slightly corrected version as an inexpensive student edition. This is seen as one of the few standard works of German post-war philosophy which has achieved worldwide recognition. The huge reaction to this is surprising for many reasons, among other things because in this work an important new theory is presented in intimations only using the author's own conceptual instruments; in fact the author is careful when touching on ancient themes in the philosophical approach to the world. The main question in the work is: What actually happens when we understand? Gadamer focuses on the historical dimensions of understanding, including his famous rehabilitation of prejudice. In addition to the systematic excursus, the book contains an intellectual history of hermeneutics, which is convincing in its virtuosity in dealing with a variety of inspirational figures such as Hegel, Dilthey, Husserl and Heidegger. The amiability and objectivity with which Gadamer invites his readers to a discussion are what account for the enormous influence of this exemplary textbook. German description: Wir sagen, dass wir ein Gesprach fuhren, aber je eigentlicher ein Gesprach ist, desto weniger liegt die Fuhrung desselben in dem Willen des einen oder anderen Partners. (...) Was bei einem Gesprach herauskommt, weiss keiner vorher. (Gadamer, Wahrheit und Methode I, S. 387) Das Hauptwerk Wahrheit und Methode erscheint 2010, genau 50 Jahre nach der Erstausgabe, in durchgesehener und korrigierter Form als preiswerte Studienausgabe. Dieses Buch, das sein Autor erst im Alter von 60 Jahren schrieb, wurde zu einem Uberraschungserfolg der philosophischen Literatur. Als eines der wenigen weltweit anerkannten Standardwerke der deutschen Nachkriegsphilosophie wurde es in viele Sprachen ubersetzt.Die grosse Resonanz konnte aus vielerlei Grunden erstaunen, unter anderem weil hier nur in Andeutungen eine grosse neue Theorie mit eigenem begrifflichen Instrumentarium vorgestellt wird; der Autor umkreist vorsichtig uralte Themen des philosophischen Weltzugangs. Vor allem geht es um die Frage: Was geschieht eigentlich, wenn wir verstehen? Er stellt die geschichtliche Dimension des Verstehens in den Mittelpunkt, auch durch seine beruhmte Rehabilitierung des Vorurteils. Die systematischen Exkurse werden erganzt durch eine Geistesgeschichte der Hermeneutik, die in ihrer virtuosen Behandlung so unterschiedlicher Anreger wie Hegel, Dilthey, Husserl und Heidegger uberzeugt. Die Freundlichkeit und Sachlichkeit, mit der Gadamer seinen Leser ins Gesprach einladt, machen den Rang dieses vorbildlichen Lehrbuchs aus.

Die Propagandaformel vom »Krieg gegen den Terror« ist seit geraumer Zeit nicht mehr in aller Munde, wirkt jedoch untergründig fort. Aber haben wir überhaupt jemals richtig begriffen, was damit gemeint ist, und vor allem, wie subtil und mit welchen Mitteln dieser Krieg geführt wurde und wird? In seinem neuen Buch erkundet der renommierte Bildtheoretiker W. J. T. Mitchell die Sprach- und Bildpolitiken im Jahrzehnt nach 9/11 und stößt auf eine so heikle wie mächtige Konstellation aus Metaphern und Bildern, die ihre eigene furchteinflößende Realität erschafft und enorme gesellschaftliche und politische Auswirkungen hat. Letztere werden noch verstärkt durch einen anderen Begriff, der praktisch zeitgleich die Bühne des öffentlichen Diskurses betrat: das Klonen. Das Klonen und der Terror, so eine zentrale These Mitchells, weisen beunruhigende strukturelle Ähnlichkeiten auf und verschmelzen zu einem Dispositiv aus Realem und Imaginärem, Fakten und Metaphern, Überzeugungen und religiösem Glauben – zu einer gefährlichen Allianz aus Biotechnologie, Biopolitik und realer Politik, die sich in Bildern reproduziert und ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingräbt. Mitchells Buch ist ein Meisterwerk politischer Ästhetik und zugleich eine düstere Bilanz der Bush-Ära: »Der Kapuzenmann von Abu Ghraib, des Terrors verdächtig, Opfer der Folter, ein anonymer Klon, gesichtsloser Menschensohn, wird auf absehbare Zeit die Ikone unserer Zeit bleiben.«

Die beispiellose Zunahme von Bildern und ihre globale Verbreitung in den letzten Jahrzehnten hat auf die Frage, wie Bilder entstehen, wie sie Bedeutung erlangen und wie sie wirken, ein neues Licht geworfen. Insofern das Bild zentrales Medium der Kunsttherapie ist, hat sie die Aufgabe und Verantwortung, Voraussetzungen fur einen reflektierten Umgang mit Bildern zu schaffen. Aus einer interdisziplinaren Orientierung heraus werden in diesem Band unterschiedliche Vorgehensweisen des Bildgebrauchs und ihre theoretischen Implikationen vorgestellt. Ziel ist es, den Blick zu scharfen fur Gesichtspunkte einer zu entwickelnden kunsttherapeutischen Bildtheorie, die ein Verstandnis der Entstehungsbedingungen von Bildern und ihrer Rolle in der kunsttherapeutischen Interaktion vermittelt."
