Dramatherapy in Britain has its early origins in work with this client group and this has been clearly documented elsewhere (see Jennings 1973; Brudenell 1987; Chapters 1 and 10 this volume). I shall not be attempting an historical survey here. My intention is rather to outline a broad working methodology based on my current work in this field. I shall be using the metaphor of aviation as a kind of map to illustrate the developmental phases of this work. These phases may take place within one session; it may take many sessions to move from one phase to another; and it may be impossible or inappropriate to move through all phases with one group. Each phase is characterised by a certain level of imaginative involvement, creativity and spontaneity. By placing the group somewhere on this map the dramatherapist may view both how far they have come together and also what kind of challenge may be appropriate next.1
