Synopsis

Larger than Life is aimed at anyone interested in obesity and its treatment. It follows a dramatherapy group attended by six women, all struggling with their weight, using vignettes, transcriptions of the sessions attended, and commentary on the progress made by the participants. A final interview concludes each of the women's therapy, where they talk about their experiences within the group, followed by the therapist's summation of their treatment. The book concludes with brief telephone conversations with all six women three years after their treatment ended, giving a clear picture of the value of dramatherapy to the individual. As well as looking at these specific case studies, the authors also discuss the causes and effects of obesity, the dramatherapy group process, and why dramatherapy is an effective means of treating eating disorders. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the subject of obesity or dramatherapy.
