This time I’m posting a link to a recently published article, rather than the full article itself. “Conducting playback theatre with older adults—A therapist’s perspective” by Shoshi Keisari, Dani Yaniv, Yuval Palgi, and Anat Gesser-Edelsburg is a very readable and valuable contribution to research about Playback Theatre. It was published in September in The Arts in Psychotherapy. The link is published here by permission, and gives access to the article until October 8, 2018.
- Life-stories of older adults are revealed in Playback Theatre (PT) groups.
- Playfulness within PT can enhance flexibility and self-development in older age.
- The PT shared group experience can promote belonging and social engagement.
