Thomas, Amy E (2000) An adolescent in individual drama therapy : exploring meaning, power, and creativity through co-construction and narrative therapy influences. Other thesis, Concordia University.
This paper is a documentation of an adolescent's journey in individual Drama Therapy. Narrative therapy and the theories of co-construction have inspired this work clinically and theoretically. The process is documented in a unique way, culminating in a document, a "script", which was co-constructed through our Drama Therapy sessions. The creation of the script contained and supported the clinical therapeutic goals, while empowering and supplying a vehicle for the adolescent to contribute her voice in a process that, traditionally, is dominated by the voice of the researcher. It is my belief that the creation of meaning in a therapeutic process is, in part, through the discourse and interactions between the therapist and the client. It is therefore my intention to attempt to honor this discourse. I hope therefore, that in this paper the voice and spirit of the young woman with whom I have worked is evident. This paper marks the beginning of my research into Drama Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
