The method is applicable to a wide range of children with varied symptoms (psychosomatic problems, distractibility, hyperactivity, inhibition, capable children performing poorly at school, etc.). By creating a warm climate of reciprocal tolerance and acceptance, psychodramatists allow children to express themselves freely in a group of their peers and to reshape their negative self-image. Psychodrama lets children use their natural language of play to mobilize their creative imagination, and to express their anxieties, conflicts and problems in a symbolic mode. This approach helps children heal through their own creativity.
Psychodrama with Children will be of interest to psychodramatists, dramatherapists and child psychotherapists, as well as psychologists, psychiatrists and other child and adolescent mental health professionals.
