Abstract

In this paper, I combine the methodologies of picture book story response and drama therapeutic exploration. Inspired by Alida Gersie's Therapeutic Storymaking model, I have created a drama therapeutic model that is designed to offer children a sense of belonging through dramatic expression and creativity. Part I of the paper addresses the therapeutic potential of picture books and explains how picture books can be used drama therapeutically with children. The application of my Drama Therapeutic Story Exploration method is described, with reference to therapeutic picture book themes, as well as the dramatic story exploration process, and guidelines for the facilitator. In Part II, I offer fifteen picture books accompanied by suggestions for drama therapeutic exploration. The books are collated according to five themes which encourage children to (1) explore the potentials of their bodies, (2) discover the safety of homes and relationships, (3) negotiate conflicts, (4) celebrate their achievements, and (5) address issues of loss and separation.
