Event description

Description

You are warmly invited to the 2019-2020 CIMTR Research Lecture Series. The research lectures are free of charge for anyone who would like to attend. Students, staff and members of the public are most welcome. These lectures aim to offer students the opportunity to meet researchers and develop their critical thinking. For staff and members of the public, it is a great opportunity to hear about the most current research and network with professionals from a variety of fields. The events will be held in Jerome Booth Music Therapy Centre CB1 2LZ from 5.30-6.30pm.

On Monday 17th February, we welcome Dr Emma Ramsden, Roundabout Dramatherapy, with her lecture 'Shine a Light on Autism (SaLoA) - Feasibility study for a Randomised Control Trial (RCT) of Group Dramatherapy for Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (autism) in schools: Presentation of preliminary findings'.

This paper will delivery key findings from a feasibility study (2018-2020) funded by the British Association of Dramatherapists which focuses on anxiety reduction for junior aged children on the autism spectrum through engagement in group dramatherapy. The study aims to seek proof of concept to conduct the first randomised control trial in dramatherapy in the UK. The manualised design is rooted in the established practice of both Roundabout practitioners and evidence in the field of dramatherapy. Roundabout is the largest dramatherapy charity in the UK providing services for more than three decades. This research is in partnership with Kings College London.

Emma Ramsden, PhD, is a Dramatherapist, lecturer and clinical supervisor with 20 years experience of working with children and adults in educational settings and with mentally ill offenders in one of the UK’s high secure National Health Service (NHS) psychiatric hospitals. Emma’s research interests focus on the ethics of consent for clients in vulnerable communities and she has a number of publication on her work with children and adults.
