Abstract

This book offers a collection of articles written by partners and trainers involved in the ARTPAD (Achieving Resilience through Play and Drama) project funded through the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, running Sept 2015 - August 2018. It brought together five partners from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Poland and the UK (with the University of Gloucestershire as lead partner) with expertise and experience in educator training, drama and play. The project aimed to promote awareness and skills development for practitioners in formal and informal education settings in terms of how play and drama techniques can support the development of resilience in pupils struggling with formal education (particularly disadvantaged children), thereby increasing their motivation to engage with education and addressing issues of early school leaving. The book includes academic articles and reflections on practice, offering an eclectic mix of perspectives on the three core concepts (resilience, drama and play) and how education practitioners can work with them.
