Abstract

This theoretical inquiry explores the potential relationship between Carl Jung’s technique of active imagination and the use of role in drama therapy. Jungian psychology and drama therapy are first familiarized through identifying what sets each apart from other therapeutic modes, and proceeds to explore how both active imagination and role can be understood as tools that allow for explorations into the principles contained within their respective therapeutic paradigms. Efforts are then made to see both the similarities and differences between the techniques, both in how they operate and what their intentions serve. As such, the goal of this research is ultimately to offer new clinical knowledge for drama therapists interested in how Jungian concepts and techniques might be applied in the practice of drama therapy. This paper can therefore be used to further research in the application of Jungian concepts, theory, and techniques in the field of drama therapy.
