"This study gathered available student theses focused on drama therapy in North America with an aim to highlight, organize, categorize, and increase accessibility to drama therapy master’s theses and dissertations, as well as to understand possible future trajectories of the field, based on student work. In a narrative review, 192 theses and dissertations submitted to four different schools between the years 2017–2022 were categorized into five domains: research method, drama therapy theory, intervention and integration focus, population, and setting. A broad variety of research interests were identified throughout the theses and dissertations. Students demonstrated an engagement with the extant knowledge base of drama therapy as well as an interest in the current trends of empirical drama therapy research. Furthermore, students’ theses expanded the field of drama therapy by applying drama therapy in novel settings or with seldom-researched populations, as well as creating new or expanded methods and theories of drama therapy. As such, students’ theses enrich the field as a whole and guide drama therapy research in new directions."

Dear NADTA Members,

My name is Emily Faith, MA, LPC, RDT, and I am the current Communications Chair. At this moment, I am looking to establish a voluntary committee of creative and innovative volunteers with experience in and a passion for digital communications on our social platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram) and collaboration on newsletters and graphic design. The goal of this committee is to enhance communication and community between NADTA members and to increase public awareness and understanding of drama therapy. As a social media manager, I know all too well that one person's skills are best suited for ONE platform- because of that, and to ensure fair time expectations, I am inviting folks who are interested in focusing their talents on ONE of the following:

LinkedIn
Facebook
Instagram
Graphic Design
Blog/Vlog

With a year of NADTA communications service under my belt, it has been a pleasure to enhance our social media presence and feel more connected to the NADTA community. AND, I do not believe that the role of communications chair should ever be a monologue. I am excited, nervous, hopeful, curious, and ready to invite you into the play with me. It is much more interesting, impactful, inclusive, innovative, inspirational that way.

Qualifications include:

An enjoyment for and active engagement personally or professionally with the platform of choice

Capacity for weekly communication with Communications Chair via email, text, or Slack

Curious parties please email [email protected]. Please include which platform you are interested in supporting in the email.

Warmly,
Emily Faith, MA, LPC, RDT

(pronouns: she, her, hers)
Communications Chair

Calling all BIPOC researchers! 📢📢📢

Over the last two years, the BIPOC research sub-committee has done some incredible work, from publishing a research article in the DTR special issue on racial justice, to hosting an information workshop for emergent BIPOC researchers interested in the IRB process, to a performance at the last conference.

Over the last several months, we’ve had some transitions in the group and are currently without leadership. This call is for any established BIPOC researcher who has the time and space to step in to lead (or co-lead) this committee.

As with all of our sub-committees, the BIPOC research team is totally volunteer run. We recognize that serving on a committee is an ask that not everyone is able to answer, but we hope there are 1-2 BIPOC researchers in the field who would be willing to help with this committee. The time-commitment to this group is dependent on the direction the leader(s) and the group members take the committee. The time commitments of our research committees vary and range from weekly tasks and meetings, to bi-weekly, and monthly. Typically, depending on the focus, there are both synchronous meetings and asynchronous tasks. This is decided at the discretion of the group's members and leadership team.

We are also able to add more emergent researchers to this group, once the committee has new leadership in place.

Please inquire with our Research Chair, Angelle Cook at [email protected] if you are interested in leading the group or joining as a participating member.

Please join us for this session wrapping up our equity audit with AORTA, from 12-3pm ET / 9am-1pm PT on Sunday, Dec 17.

AUTISTIC UTOPIAS:

Sunday, December 10th, 2023
12:00 pm -1:30pm ET on Zoom
RSVP or
bit.ly/djbt-1210

Our panel, consisting of all neurodivergent identified therapists and non-therapists, will consider the idea of autistic utopias in drama therapy and how they can potentially support the goals of disability justice. What would it look like to imagine or conceive of an autistic utopia? How can drama therapists who work with people on the autism spectrum support the creation of spaces that are not allistic in values, intention and aesthetics?

The NADTA would like to take a moment to send our condolences to Indigenous Regeneration and the Kumeyaay Tribe of San Diego, California. We recently received news that Tribal Elder, Dr. Richard Lee Bugbee passed, on Sunday, Oct 15th, 2023. Dr. Richard Lee Bugbee and Lacey Cannon of the Kumeyaay tribe attended the annual luncheon at the 43th annual NADTA conference and blessed us with an authentic land acknowledgement, discussed their organization and their continued work to bring various forms of therapy to their reservation. Please take your time to share your condolences with Indigenous Regeneration and the Kumeyaay tribe as we know grief and loss are no easy feats.
