Arslan, Suna
Education, v135 n4 p423-434 Sum 2015
This study seeks an answer to the question "Can Creative Drama programs be benefited from in developing the experiences of noticing educational and psychosocial problems and solving them in relation with the teaching profession?." The importance given to Creative Drama method in educational programs increases day by day. Drama education aims to improve the ability to solve problems, and it has several other contributions.In this research, The Turkish Form of "Problem Solving Inventory" adapted by Sahin, Sahin and Heppner (1993) and originally developed by Heppner and Peterson (1982) has been used. The sampling of the study is constituted by preservice teachers studying at Cumhuriyet University Faculty of Education. The research findings imply that Creative Drama education applied within the semesterly course does not contribute to the participants' problem solving levels. The limited time of drama education and the fact that problem solving ability requires a longer education can account for this finding and suggestions have been made within this context.
