Submission deadline: 1 February 2018


Drama Therapy Review (DTR) welcomes research about the therapeutic uses of drama and performance in health, educational, community, organizational, and theatre contexts. 



DTR Call for Papers for Special Issue 5.1: Drama Therapy in Schools


Submission deadline: 1 August 2018


Guest Co-Editors: Jason Frydman and Christine Mayor

Principal Editor: Nisha Sajnani


This special issue of Drama Therapy Review seeks research on the impact of drama therapy across a variety of educational settings. Drama therapists have a long history of working in schools where their work has been valued as a unique method of identifying individual strengths and challenges, promoting positive socialization, complementing learning, increasing emotional regulation skills and student retention, supporting school climate, and improving academic performance. However, it remains important to demonstrate the efficacy of drama therapy in schools.


With this in mind, we invite contributions that offer evidence of the impact of drama therapy across traditional K-12 settings, preschools, university/college venues, and specialized schools. Contributors are encouraged to conceptualize how drama therapy services support site specific ecologies, promote student and/or faculty wellness, facilitate systems integration within and outside of the school, and contribute to educational requirements. While articles articulating theory or methods are welcome, we encourage articles that apply theory into practice and that are supported by quantitative and/or qualitative evidence.


DTR welcomes contributions from a wide range of scholarly work including, but not limited to:


• Quantitative studies

• Qualitative analysis

• Practice and arts-based research

• Reviews

• Reports

• Interviews

• Commentaries


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. 


To submit work for consideration please download our submission guidelines and email

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication.

Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
