Abstract

This study looks at the use of drama therapy in exploring the meaning and images of home for homeless women. It looks at the common images and meanings that appeared through the direct exploration of the experience of home: past, present and future using pre- and post-interviews and drama therapy sessions. It also considers the images and meaning of home as they appeared indirectly through the self-identity work done in drama therapy and milieu therapy sessions. The role of identity within the dramatic process and how this impacted awareness of self in relation to home is discussed.
