The Use of Psychodrama Techniques for Students with Asperger's Disorder
Munir, Samira; Scholwinski, Edward; Lasser, Jon
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n2 2006
Asperger's Disorder (AD) is a pervasive developmental disorder affecting social functioning and behavioral interest and activities. The purpose of this article is to inform school counselors of the characteristic features of AD, common interventions being implemented, and the techniques associated with the practice of psychodrama that appear to have particular relevance in facilitating the generalization of social skills for students with AD. The merits of using psychodrama over other school counseling therapeutic approaches are considered, with an emphasis on the interface of psychodramatic techniques and key features of AD.
