A Psychodramatist in the Classroom

Abstract: A teacher uses her experience as a psychodrama trainee to introduce several principles and practices into the classroom that promote the development of every student's identity. She contrasts this developmental approach to education with two outdated models still prevalent in Australian schools. She recognizes the contribution of three eminent educators from the 20th century, namely, Leila Berg, Sylvia Ashton-Warner and Paulo Freire, whose work inspired her own teaching practices.
