|PDF - Accepted Version|
The following paper describes and summarizes my qualitative research in the form of group case study based upon the therapeutic process of four female participants. The primary question explored is: does the use of role in dramatherapy have efficacy for adult women suffering from depression? I have herein chosen to examine a feminist theoretical model which addresses women's inherently relational nature as it links with their susceptibility to this serious illness. Chapters One and Two comprise a review of the relevant literature with a heightened emphasis upon role theory. Chapters Three, Four and Five introduce my four participants and provide summaries of their therapeutic progressions through role, as well as a description of and rationale for employing Renee Emunah's Integrative Five Phase Model. Chapter Six presents an overview of both individual and group experiences of specific, role-related dramatherapy tools. Finally, Chapter Seven consists of a critical appraisal of the process and resultant findings.
