This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book begins with a quote from the Canadian drama educator, Richard Courtney, on Dramatherapy: In this pithy statement, Courtney succinctly states the difficulty of attempting to describe and classify what Dramatherapy is. It explores the differences and similarities between Dramatherapy and drama education; more importantly it is to examine the space between the two professions, describe and explain the overlap, and explore the potential benefits such an examination may hold for future dialogue. In considering drama in education it is impossible to escape from both the wider educational and political contexts and/or the place drama shares within its history. According to Ken Jones, the 1944 Education Act saw the labour movement as a radical political force. The book suggests that writers acknowledge the importance for an inter-disciplinary state within institutions, organisations and professions.
