Going birco (DVD Presentation)

Adrian Z Lania

Going Birco follows a dramatherapy project held at Ashcroft High School in South-Western Sydney. Adrian Lania, psychologist and dramatherapist was concerned about bullying and fighting in the schoolyard that was occurring between students from different cultural backgrounds. He took a group of students and concentrated on dramatherapeutic interventions that promotes a greater awareness of ritual and culture in our society. His focus was to help students understand that despite our differences the emotions experienced by all people are similar. Dramatherapist Joanna Jaaniste and Mental Health Carer Support Worker Janetta Hannaford facilitated the parents' group. They used roleplay and improvisation to explore family dynamics, problem solving and mental health issues. These two strands interweave in an engrossing pastiche of the students' and parents' groups.
