About the Author

Phil Jones is a reader at Carnegie Faculty, Leeds Metropolitan University. He has lectured and written widely on the Arts Therapies across the world. He has been a principal lecturer and course leader at postgraduate and masters level for 20 years


"Phil Jones' Second Edition of Drama as Therapy is a comprehensive, erudite, and grounded illumination of the field of drama therapy. He brings past, present, and future of the field to life in an active conversation among practitioners, researchers, and theoreticians. Jones' emphasis on the core processes underlying the therapeutic effects of drama, rather than the marketed "approaches," provides a solid understanding of drama therapy. He is a brilliant, open, and modest author whose book continues to be one of the most significant contributions to the drama therapy literature." -- David Read Johnson, Director of the Institute for the Arts in Psychotherapy, New York, USA "In this exciting new edition, Jones's "core processes of dramatherapy" have been tested in practice by a range of therapists, whose experiences have now been ploughed back to produce a book which is systematic but sensitive, comprehensive and focused - alive with the real presence of healing-in-drama." -- Roger Grainger, Department of Psychology and Health Studies, Roehampton University, UK "His exquisitely clear articulation of what dramatherapy is, how it really functions as therapy, and its value in today's world, especially with the inclusion of many exciting cross-cultural vignettes, make this expanded 2nd edition by Phil Jones, unquestionably, one of the best textbooks in our field." -- Stephen Snow, RDT-BCT Coordinator, Graduate Drama Therapy, Department of Creative Art Therapies, Concordia University, Canada
