Drama Therapy Conference in New York

At the National Association for Drama Therapy's annual conference Suraya Keating (pictured above - right), Nicki Koethner and I presented on our work with 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. This presentation was similar to the one we made at the International Expressive Arts Therapy Association's Annual Conference at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA this summer. (see post)

This time we were joined by John Bergman(pictured above, center), who was one of the founders of the RSVP program and has done a lot of work using drama therapy with people incarcerated for violent crimes and he has published a fair amount. I recommend :
Challenging Experience, (2003) by Bergman J and Hewish S
Published by Woods 'n Barnes. Oklahoma.
