This practical book of exercises, written for treatment providers, offers an adaptable, experiential curriculum for work with serious offenders, both adult and adolescent. Each exercise is accompanied by information pertaining to the number of clients needed, the amount of time required, and at what point in the treatment regimen the exercise should be used.
"This execellent resource, written by two of the most renowned experts in the use of drama therapy with offenders, offers solid, concise, "how-to" information that will serve as an essential guide for therapists treating criminal offenders. Most offender therapists have worked with clients who appear "stuck" in their treatment, have difficulty identifying and expressing emotions, or who rely on over-intellectualization to avoid real experiences. I believe this book is of exceptional value to anyone wishing to reach those clients and help them achieve maximum benefit from the behavioral change work being done in treatment programs." Anita Schlank, Ph.D., LP, Clinical Director, Minnesota Sex Offender Program.
