Drama Therapy Review is published in partnership with the North American Drama Therapy Association. Drama Therapy Review (DTR) documents and disseminates research on the relationship between drama, theatre and wellness. The aim of this journal is to encourage scholarship about drama therapy theory and practice, facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue and provide a forum for lively debate in the field. DTR profiles and critically reflects upon current and emerging practices involving the therapeutic uses of improvisation, playwriting, directing and performance in health, educational, community, organizational and theatre contexts. 

The primary audience consists of practitioners, educators and scholars of drama therapy, health practitioners and policy makers, theatre makers, applied theatre and allied arts practitioners, and cultural workers interested in the health benefits and risks associated with drama and performance. Contributors include eminent theorists, educators and practitioners in the field but the journal also features innovative work from lesser-known authors. 

The editorial board assesses articles for the quality of scholarly and critical content. The principal language is English; however, the journal will consider articles in other languages for which reviewers can be accessed, with abstracts in English. Abstracts will be translated into French and Spanish where possible. Editorial assistance may be given to those whose work is worthy of inclusion, but for whom the language of the article is not their first, or for whom the written word is not their forte. There is an explicit policy of making the articles stylistically accessible and readable to the range of readership.

Upcoming special issues

Issue 7.1: Drama Therapy and Older Adults

Submission deadline: 1 August 2020

Guest Editors: Jennie Smith-Peers, MA, Past Executive Director of the National Center for Creative Aging and Andrew Gaines, PhD, RDT, Theatre and Communication, Grays Harbor College

This special issue of Drama Therapy Review seeks research on the impact of drama therapy on the health and well-being of older adults. Drama therapy can help older adults successfully adapt and solve problems, reappraise perceptions and become more equipped to expand the roles they play. It remains important to demonstrate the efficacy of drama therapy with older adults across a variety of community, educational and clinical settings. Contributors are encouraged to present new and emerging evidence about the role drama therapy plays toward the health and quality of life of older adults and their families. We seek scholarship that investigates and explores wellness across eight dimensions: emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual. How does drama and theatre nurture human development, foster intergenerational exchange, activate resilience and dismantle ageism?
