Summary

Psychodrama has its genesis in the play of children. In Who Calls the Tune? Bernadette Hoey explains how its powerful technique can be safely used in working with the child who has been badly traumatized. In her deceptively simple narrative of ten case studies the voices of children can be clearly heard as therapist and child enter together the world of play that can be unpredictable, funny and moving - an apparently spontaneous form of healing. It is through detailed commentary on each session that the reader is enabled to identify techniques derived from Moreno's original theories which lie hidden in the shared play. Providing practical examples of work with children suffering from a range of problems including language disorder, depression and abuse, the author sets her work firmly in the context of theoretical analysis and good practice. Her book wil be an inspiration to all those who are looking for new ways to help the healing process in troubled children.
