Abstract

This chapter aims to consider the principles of neuro-dramatic play - NDP (Jennings 2011) as a form of pre-therapy/ structured interventional play. By running nine sessions with a group of 15 children (Years 3 to 6, 7-11 year olds), all of whom had been handpicked by school staff, due to their confidence and self-esteem issues; I will explore the notion of NDP as an effective form of low level play based intervention. By allowing the children to build bridges with each other through the play and going on a fantastical and dramatic hero’s journey, I will consider the appropriateness of NDP as a way of supporting the confidence and self-esteem of a small group of middle school age children in the UK.
