Assisting Children and Young People to Participate in Legal Processes

Abstract: The author discusses the application of the psychodramatic technique of role training to help children and young people to understand and participate in legal processes. She describes two areas where role training was effective, namely school discipline meetings and court appearances. She asserts that psychodrama helps her to react more spontaneously to her young clients and to find innovative ways to help them participate in the legal setting.
