Research circles

New: Research Circle “We do Research! – Doing research!”
In this new working group we develop specific and practice-based ideas for possible research projects in daily drama therapy practice.
Informed by arts-based approaches, this group is supervised by Sabine Koch and Anke Schäfer when required. – First online meeting planned in February 2024. Take part, join us!

Contact: Björn Kaltwasser,

If you have further suggestions for research circles, contact us. A working group should consist of about five people and meet quarterly. The findings that emerge at the meetings can be documented and be discussed in a special annual research circle colloquium.

Possible research circle topics could be (e.g.):

  1. Funding for drama therapy / “Theatertherapie” research projects
  2. What can research by non-academics look like?
  3. What could research tandems look like? Academics in exchange with practitioners

Please submit further suggestions:

Special research group on ritual research (Ingrid Lutz)
