Drama Therapy Review is published in partnership with the North American Drama Therapy Association

Drama Therapy Review (DTR) documents and disseminates research on the relationship between drama, theatre, and wellness. The aim of this journal is to encourage scholarship about drama therapy theory and practice, facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue, and provide a forum for lively debate in the field. DTR profiles and critically reflects upon current and emerging practices involving the therapeutic uses of improvisation, playwriting, directing, and performance in health, educational, community, organizational, and theatre contexts. 

The primary audience consists of practitioners, educators, and scholars of drama therapy, health practitioners and policy makers, theatre makers, applied theatre and allied arts practitioners, and cultural workers interested in the health benefits and risks associated with drama and performance. Contributors include eminent theorists, educators, and practitioners in the field but the journal also features innovative work from lesser-known authors.  

DTR is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal that encourages articles that are contextualized, grounded in coherent theory, and reflect exemplary practice. This may include but is not limited to qualitative and quantitative studies, literature reviews, arts based research, and context-specific case vignettes. In addition to articles, DTR includes book and performance reviews, commentaries, editorials, visual essays, and position papers. The editorial team of DTR is dedicated to keeping the journal responsive to authors and to matters of current interest and concern as well as the occasional thematic issue.  

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. Abstracts will be translated into French and Spanish where possible. 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. 

Drama Therapy Review is the journal of the North American Drama Therapy Association.
