Adolescence is a tough time for secondary students as well as for you, their teachers and support professionals. Being no longer a child, but not quite an adult, teens need a safe, enjoyable outlet that engages them and gives them a chance to talk about their feelings. Drama can be that outlet, and in Drama and the Adolescent Journey, you'll find ways to use dramatic enactments to help adolescents make a successful transition to adulthood.

In Drama and the Adolescent Journey you'll discover a variety of drama activities that start students on a journey toward greater self-esteem and maturity. Teens will learn to situate their experience within their own lives and within the world at large. With a strong research base beneath them, Linda Nelson and Lanell Finneran demonstrate both why and how drama can help students enjoy their journey, show them ways around the roadblocks they may meet, and offer them a sense of how far they've come and where they'd like to be going. In addition, they offer crucial strategies for success with: understanding the developmental and behavioral changes of adolescence selecting content that truly engages adolescents and addresses their needs structuring drama activities to give teens the best possible support managing the activities and attending to the practical concerns of teaching with drama. Give teenagers the gift of self-knowledge. Read Drama and the Adolescent Journey and find a great new way to guide them through one of life's toughest times.

This is a fantastic tool for theatre educators and teaching artists working with adolescents. Accessible, slim, and written in a conversational tone I've found myself using this for everything from "rainy-day" lesson plans to a resource for my graduate thesis. Highly recommended.

Drama and the Adolescent Journey is a wonderful resource to address ways to proactively engage teens in their own growth process through drama and the creative arts. The authors, Linda Nelson, RDT and Lanell Finneran, RDT/BCT, bring a wide range of knowledge to this book, both having worked with adolescents within the public school system for years. This book is geared, not toward clinical populations, but toward the typical adolescents one might meet anywhere and offers developmental theory and practical hands-on techniques to assist with the journey. The focus is on drama therapy for prevention with youth as opposed to drama therapy as intervention and it is written from the perspective of strengthening normal development as a means of avoiding the development of abnormal behavior. Chapters 6 and 7 in particular offer many useful creative arts therapies activities for use in exploring adolescent issues.

In Drama and the Adolescent Journey: Warm-ups and Activities to Address Teen Issues, Nelson and Finneran have written a very practical guide for using dramatic techniques to help teens through the tumultuous journey of adolescence. The authors suggest a metaphor for the overall technique of drama therapy, which is that drama allows the teen to maintain a safe distance from their internally developing identity, and from their peers, as well. Welcoming the reader into the world of dramatic techniques with their warm and reassuring style ("You can do this!"), the authors make the distinction between theatre and drama, suggesting that drama is for everyone, not just those with acting or other creative skills. Nelson and Finneran also share that they have seen in their work that adults forget the emotions of the teen years, but remember the experiences, and so these very useable and do-able techniques help the adult helpers to "make room" for the power of feelings within the adolescent journey.
