Religion and Dramatherapy, (un)comfortable bedfellows?'
Are we fully inclusive of people from diverse religious backgrounds within dramatherapy (and other modalities)? How do their beliefs interact with the therapeutic process and how can we use that interaction in our work?
Mandy will outline preliminary findings from her current doctoral research, exploring whether dramatherapists feel able to express their religious identities (if relevant) within the profession and how this might relate to their work with clients.
She will relate her preliminary findings to a brief exploration of the relationship between the worlds of psychological therapies and religion. In conclusion, she will invite participants to consider implications for contemporary mental health professionals.
Her talk will be illustrated with practical examples of the dilemmas and difficulties that can be encountered in this area.
We look forward to seeing you online,
The BPA Committee
