Abstract

In this paper, I will investigate various sources that describe the following concepts and explore the link between them: depression, meaning of life, and dramatherapy. The paper is in four chapters. The first chapter is focused on the concept of depression. The second chapter explains the concept of life meaning. The work of several authors regarding the role of life meaning for improved mental health will be explored. In chapter three I will investigate the link between dramatherapy and life meaning. In conclusion I will describe how dramatherapy could have a role to play in helping individuals find meaning and therefore alleviate symptoms of depression. This research can potentially contribute to the use of dramatherapy in adults with depression.
