PLEASE JOIN US at a conference designed to explore the use of PLAY, DRAMA and THEATER in educating children and adolescents at risk. This conference is presented by the Academy of Music and Theater in Rostock in close collaboration with the Department of SPECIAL EDUCATION at the university of Rostock, starting on May 8th and ending on May 10th.
Use of creative expression, imaginative play and theater to project, reflect and enhance life in a supportive milieu

Theoretical perspective: concepts of developmental psychopathology, as they may help to explain how participation in play and drama serves to protect against combinations of biological and socio-cultural risks and enhance resilience

We welcome practitioners and researchers representing the worlds of theater, education, special education psychology and social sciences to attend as well as inform us of their interest in the themes of this conference, their desire to participate and to submit papers. Special consideration will be given to those papers that are evidence based and help to elucidate the concepts and professional concepts involved.
