- 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.
