Th Drama Therapy Pie

The second edition of "The Drama Therapy Decision Tree: Connecting Drama Therapy interventions to Treatment," co-written by Sally Bailey and Paige Dickinson, was published by Intellect Books in April.

Bailey is the director of the drama therapy program in the School of Music, Theatre and Dance at K-State. Dickinson is associate professor in the Creative Arts Collegium at Eckerd College in Florida. The book is a practical guide for therapeutic decision-making and shows how drama therapy interventions align with diagnostic information, phase of treatment and psychological distance to achieve global outcomes.

The authors provide a common language for communicating what drama therapist do and how they do it in order to demystify drama therapy for other mental health and medical professions.
