Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlepeer-review


The paper presents partial results of an ongoing research into evaluation of dramatherapy process in a community type addictions treatment and psychorehabilitation. The research is a continuation of an ongoing evaluation process of a dramatherapeutic Evaluation rating created by the research team. The results of using the evaluation rating were described in a previous paper. Dramatherapy sessions were provided weekly over 16 weeks in a group form. They were focused on embodied expression, insight through the means of metaphor and stories and exploring playfulness. Our interest was to observe the dramatherapeutic process and its specifics with clients in addictions rehabilitation and in the specific setting of the community type treatment in a psychiatric hospital. Qualitative data was gained from process recordings, comments of clients during evaluation session, and a focus group of dramatherapists. Quantitative data will be available from the evaluation rating that constitutes a second part of this research.
