Performing Psychologies offers new perspectives on arts and health, focussing on the different ways in which performance interacting with psychology can enhance understanding of the mind. The book challenges stereotypes of disability, madness and creativity, addressing a range of conditions (autism, dementia and schizophrenia) and performance practices including staged productions and applied work in custodial, health and community settings. Featuring case studies ranging from Hamlet to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the pioneering work of companies such as Spare Tyre and Ridiculusmus, and embracing dance and music as well as theatre and drama, the volume offers new perspectives on the dynamic interactions between performance, psychology and states of mind. It contains contributions from psychologists, performance scholars, therapists and healthcare professionals, who offer multiple perspectives on working through performance-based media. Presenting a richly interdisciplinary and collaborative investigation of the arts in practice, this volume opens up new ways of thinking about the performance of psychologies, and about how psychologies perform.

Routledge International Handbook of Dramatherapy is the first book of its kind to bring together leading professionals and academics from around the world to discuss their practice from a truly international perspective. Dramatherapy has developed as a profession during the latter half of the twentieth century. Now, we are beginning to see its universal reach across the globe in a range of different and diverse approaches. From Australia, to Korea to the Middle East and Africa through Europe and into North & South America dramatherapists are developing a range of working practices using the curative power of drama within a therapeutic context to work with diverse and wide ranging populations. Using traditional texts in the Indian sub-continent, healing performances in the Cameroon, supporting conflict in Israel and Palestine, through traditional Comedic theatre in Italy, to adolescents in schools and adults with mental ill health, this handbook covers a range of topics that shows the breadth, depth and strength of dramatherapy as a developing and maturing profession. It is divided into four main sections that look at the current international: Developments in dramatherapy Theoretical approaches Specific practice New and innovative approaches Offering insights on embodiment, shamanism, anthropology and cognitive approaches coupled with a range of creative, theatrical and therapeutic methods, this ground breaking book is the first congruent analysis of the profession. It will appeal to a wide and diverse international community of educators, academics, practitioners, students, training schools and professionals within the arts, arts education and arts therapies communities. Additionally it will be of benefit to teachers and departments in charge of pastoral and social care within schools and colleges.

How is dramatherapy practised? What does research reveal about how dramatherapy offers therapeutic change?

Die Propagandaformel vom »Krieg gegen den Terror« ist seit geraumer Zeit nicht mehr in aller Munde, wirkt jedoch untergründig fort. Aber haben wir überhaupt jemals richtig begriffen, was damit gemeint ist, und vor allem, wie subtil und mit welchen Mitteln dieser Krieg geführt wurde und wird? In seinem neuen Buch erkundet der renommierte Bildtheoretiker W. J. T. Mitchell die Sprach- und Bildpolitiken im Jahrzehnt nach 9/11 und stößt auf eine so heikle wie mächtige Konstellation aus Metaphern und Bildern, die ihre eigene furchteinflößende Realität erschafft und enorme gesellschaftliche und politische Auswirkungen hat. Letztere werden noch verstärkt durch einen anderen Begriff, der praktisch zeitgleich die Bühne des öffentlichen Diskurses betrat: das Klonen. Das Klonen und der Terror, so eine zentrale These Mitchells, weisen beunruhigende strukturelle Ähnlichkeiten auf und verschmelzen zu einem Dispositiv aus Realem und Imaginärem, Fakten und Metaphern, Überzeugungen und religiösem Glauben – zu einer gefährlichen Allianz aus Biotechnologie, Biopolitik und realer Politik, die sich in Bildern reproduziert und ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingräbt. Mitchells Buch ist ein Meisterwerk politischer Ästhetik und zugleich eine düstere Bilanz der Bush-Ära: »Der Kapuzenmann von Abu Ghraib, des Terrors verdächtig, Opfer der Folter, ein anonymer Klon, gesichtsloser Menschensohn, wird auf absehbare Zeit die Ikone unserer Zeit bleiben.«

Der aufhaltsame Aufstieg des Arturo Ui zeigt den Aufstieg Hitlers zur Macht bis zum Jahre 1938. Die NS-Groß-funktionäre erscheinen als Chicagoer Gangster und reden in den glatten Jamben des deutschen klassischen Dramas. Durch die doppelte Verfremdung werden die Ereignisse jener Jahre erkennbar nicht als schicksalhaftes Verhängnis, sondern als die Konsequenz der herrschenden Verhältnisse. Indem er Hitler und seine Kumpane der Lächerlichkeit preisgibt, nimmt Brecht ihnen jenen Zug des Dämonischen, den sie für viele auch heute noch zu besitzen scheinen. Die Parabel stellt klar, daß der Faschismus kein historischer Einzelfall war: Faschismus ist die noch immer mögliche Fortsetzung der Geschäfte mit anderen Mitteln.

Ethnodrama: An Anthology of Reality Theatre contains seven carefully-selected ethnodramas that best illustrate this emerging genre of arts-based research, a burgeoning but evident trend in the field of theatre production itself. In his introduction to ethnodrama and to the plays themselves, Salda-a emphasizes how a credible, vivid, and persuasive rendering of a research participant's story as a theatrical performance creates insights for both researcher and audience not possible through conventional qualitative data analysis. With their focus on the personal, immediate and contextual, these plays about marginalized identities, abortion, street life and oppression manage a unique balance between theoretical research and everyday realism.

Die beispiellose Zunahme von Bildern und ihre globale Verbreitung in den letzten Jahrzehnten hat auf die Frage, wie Bilder entstehen, wie sie Bedeutung erlangen und wie sie wirken, ein neues Licht geworfen. Insofern das Bild zentrales Medium der Kunsttherapie ist, hat sie die Aufgabe und Verantwortung, Voraussetzungen fur einen reflektierten Umgang mit Bildern zu schaffen. Aus einer interdisziplinaren Orientierung heraus werden in diesem Band unterschiedliche Vorgehensweisen des Bildgebrauchs und ihre theoretischen Implikationen vorgestellt. Ziel ist es, den Blick zu scharfen fur Gesichtspunkte einer zu entwickelnden kunsttherapeutischen Bildtheorie, die ein Verstandnis der Entstehungsbedingungen von Bildern und ihrer Rolle in der kunsttherapeutischen Interaktion vermittelt."

Jedes Jahr finden etwa 450 Menschen, die Opfer von politischer Verfolgung, Folter oder Bürgerkrieg geworden waren, im Behandlungszentrum für Folteropfer Berlin (BZFO) medizinische, psychotherapeutische und soziale Hilfe. Zehn Jahre nach seiner Entstehung ziehen jetzt die Mitarbeiter des BZFO eine Bilanz ihrer Arbeit und dokumentieren die unterschiedlichsten Aspekte der Traumatherapie. Der Schwerpunkt des Buches liegt auf der Beschreibung des therapeutischen Handelns mit schwerst traumatisierten Menschen aus anderen Kulturen. Damit ist es eine unentbehrliche Hilfe für alle, die im psychosozialen oder medizinischen Bereich mit Flüchtlingen zu tun haben, aber auch für Therapeuten, die mit anderen schwer traumatisierten Menschen arbeiten.
