How to search

Simply typing in "drama therapy" will only reveal a small portion of the available literature. Choice of search terms has a tremendous impact on the outcome of your search. Different databases use different terminology, and none rely entirely on the phrase"drama therapy."

There is not an abundance of literature on the topic of drama therapy. Increase your search results by referencing articles in related fields, such as dance or movement therapy, that may share key concepts.
