As a co-founder of the National Association for Drama Therapy and a licensed psychologist, Dr. Eleanor Irwin has helped countless young patients find creative ways to express themselves and achieve emotional healing. She has also taught and written widely on the subject, helping to raise awareness of the life-affirming power that comes from acting out stories, scenarios, and feelings. In this classic film, the drama therapy pioneer presents several examples and helps viewers understand the vast potential of play-acting as a tool in child psychology. Topics include spontaneous dramatic play, puppetry, body movement, storytelling, and dream exploration by children of all ages in school and community settings. The play leader's role in facilitating therapeutic growth and change is a crucial part of the film's message.
