General Issue (2.2). Deadline: February 1st, 2016
Drama Therapy Review seeks articles that reflect the journal’s intention to document and disseminate drama therapy research, promote scholarship about drama therapy theory and practice, encourage inner and inter disciplinary dialogue, and provide a forum for lively debate in the field. DTR profiles and critically reflects upon current and emerging practices involving the intentional and therapeutic uses of dramatic improvisation and performance in clinical, educational, community, organizational, and research contexts.
Questions to consider:
- What are the health benefits and risks of dramatic reality?
- How does working with imagination, fiction, and metaphor differ from direct enactment?
- What are the goals of drama therapy and who establishes these?
- How do drama therapists understand and assess health, illness, and change?
- When, where and for whom is drama therapy indicated?
- What are the dominant narratives that inform our practice, pedagogy,and approaches to research?
- How does dramatic improvisation increase well being or decrease specific kinds of distress?
- How do social differences influence research and practice in drama therapy?
- How can children and other vulnerable groups be more involved in research about their own experiences in drama therapy?
- What are the aesthetics of drama therapy?
- What are the ethical and social implications of performing and witnessing private stories in public spaces?
These are but some of the questions that continue to arise in the field. DTR welcomes contributions from a wide range of scholarly work including, but not limited to:
- quantitative studies
- qualitative analysis
- practice and arts-based research
Call for Papers Special Issue (3.1): The Influence of Robert Landy on the Field of Drama Therapy
Deadline: August 1, 2016. Guest Co-Editor: Maria Hodermarska
For this special issue, we invite articles that examine and illustrate the influence of Dr. Robert Landy on the field of drama therapy. In particular, we encourage studies that draw upon his role theory and method.
Dr. Robert Landy is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist (LCAT), a Registered Drama Therapist (RDT) and Board Certified Trainer (BCT). A pioneer in the profession of drama therapy, he founded the drama therapy program at New York University in 1984 and has lectured and trained professionals internationally. As a drama therapist, Landy has more than 35 years of clinical experience, having treated children and adults with a wide range of psychiatric, cognitive and adjustment challenges. He has worked in prisons, developing programs to treat mentally ill offenders, as well as the general population within New York State correctional facilities.
As a researcher and writer, Landy has published and produced numerous books, articles, films and plays in the fields of drama, drama therapy, educational theatre, musical theatre and related topics. He has been featured in the media in the educational CBS-TV series Drama in Education, the award-winning documentary film, Standing Tall, and his own production, Three Approaches to Drama Therapy.Persona and Performance was one of the first full-length books to articulate a theory and method of drama therapy, focusing on a postmodern understanding of self as made up of a variety of roles chosen and given that might also point towards an effective action-based method for greater wellbeing. His book The Couch and the Stage: Integrating Words and Action in Psychotherapy (2008) examined the relationship between psychotherapy and drama therapy, articulating a long history of action methods and embodiment being considered part of psychological healing. His book (with David Montgomery), Theatre for Change: Education, Social Action, Therapy (2012), examined the relationship between drama therapy and applied forms of theatre. Dr. Landy and his colleagues continue to innovate today with a groundbreaking series entitled “As Performance...” which, to date, has produced 22 original plays which illuminate the performative aspects of illness, recovery, identity and community.
DTR welcomes contributions from a wide range of scholarly work including, but not limited to:
- quantitative and mixed method studies
- qualitative analysis
- arts-based practice as research
- book and performance reviews
- reports on innovative advances in the field
The editorial board assesses articles for the quality of scholarly and critical content. The principal language is English; however, the journal will consider articles in other languages for which reviewers can be accessed, with abstracts in English. Editorial assistance may be given to those whose work is worthy of inclusion, but for whom the language of the article is not their first, or for whom the written word is not their forte. There is an explicit policy of making the articles stylistically accessible and readable to the range of readership.
