Supervisors who wish to employ a more imaginative approach to their work will find concepts such as 'aesthetic distancing' and techniques derived from dramatherapy - the use of myths and stories, dramatic play and roles - particularly useful. Supervision and Dramatherapy explores the ways in which dramatherapy techniques and concepts can be applied to supervision, and looks at how supervisions are conducted within the field of dramatherapy.

The contributors, leading dramatherapists from Britain, Continental Europe, the United States and Israel, have written on the historical background of supervion in dramatherapy, the process of dramatherapy supervision, the training of supervisor-dramatherapists, taking a dramatherapy approach to business supervisions, the supervision of crisis intervention teams and dramatherapy research. They offer insights into the relationships between supervisor, supervisee and client, and the dramatic roles that unfold during the supervision process. Drawing on their own experiences in clinical and non-clinical settings, and richly illustrating their accounts with examples from practice, they offer exciting and creative ways of effectively supervising dramatherapists and non-dramatherapists alike.

Review quote

Elektra Tselikas-Portmann has skilfully edited a book that acts like a kaleidoscope, projecting the compelling thoughts of the finest authors in this field onto the screens of our imaginations. With each turn of the page we are able to get a picture of the domain of supervision from a distinctly different perspective. -- From the Foreword by Paolo Knill Supervision and Dramatherapy is an excellent collection of ten articles on the range of situations in which drama therapy students and practitioners might find themselves with a need for professional feedback in terms of training, on-going professional growth and development and special situations. A number of different models are provided: some action or theatre-based and some not, with clear criteria for where and when each is best employed. -- Dramascope Elektra Tselikas-Portmann invites the reader to explore her "map" as preparation for the journey through the complex word of supervision. Already the powerful use of metaphor promises an exciting read of a skillfully edited book with insights from leading international dramatherapists. What an achievement this book is, not only dispelling this particular myth, but also offering some wonderfully creative material from those with a deep understanding of the value of supervision as we continue our journey of growth and development. -- The Arts in Psychotherapy What an achievement this book is...offering some wonderfully creative material from those with a deep understanding of the value of supervision as we continue our journey of growth and development. -- The Arts in Psychotherapy
