Abstract

This theoretical inquiry explores the potential implications of group drama therapy on social isolation experienced by adults with schizophrenia. A brief history of the conceptualization of schizophrenia is provided, followed by a deeper examination of the current paradigm. An in-depth examination of a range of factors which contribute to social isolation in the lives of individuals living with schizophrenia is presented, as well as an extensive literature review, examining previous research and writing relating to group drama therapy used in the treatment of schizophrenia. Relevant findings in the literature review are then correlated to the causes of social isolation, demonstrating how group drama therapy might be implemented to address those causes, and ultimately help individuals with schizophrenia lead richer social lives. The purpose of this project is to provide a resource for mental health professionals, especially drama therapists, as well as to serve as a platform for future intervention research and development.
