Blurb/Shorttext:
The literature demonstrates that improvisational theatre has been shown to prompt the development of trust between players, in this case a therapist and patient, in a manner in which conventional technique is not always capable (Ringstrom, 2001). This book provides a history of improvisational theatre as well as a overview of how these skills can be incorporated into the work of mental health professionals specifically related to active listening and creative engagement which includes the concepts of play, spontaneity, and creativity. Carl Rogers’ (1961) belief that three conditions are necessary for the establishment of a helping relationship: congruence, unconditional positive regard/acceptance, and empathic understanding is closely related to basic tenants of improvisational theatre. Thus, this book provides a good framework from which to better understand the intersection of psychotherapy and improvisational theatre skills and techniques and how mental health professionals can start to sharpen their skills through the use of improvisational theatre techniques and skills.
