Freeing the Man Behind Bars
Presented by Evan Hastings, Suraya Keating & Nicki Koethner at the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association's Annual Conference at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.
The workshop was based on our work as Theatre for Change, facilitating Drama Therapy groups for men incarcerated for violent crimes within the Resolve to Stop the Violence Project (RSVP) at San Francisco County Jail. The theatre work was informed by the theories of manalive. By examining these issues through a variety of activities, participants engaged in a dialogue about the use of expressive arts in correctional facilities.
