Abstract

This special issue was assembled before the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent measures involving social distancing encouraged by the World Health Organization and national governments have necessitated an unprecedented shift to online platforms for nearly all spheres of social life including work, schooling and healthcare. Drama therapists who have been offering services online have been generous in sharing insights, drama therapy educators have been collaborating on ways of translating training, and digital venues for therapeutic performance have emerged. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. We have much work ahead of us but the creativity, spontaneity, playfulness and commitment of this community to accessible and effective care will take us forward. It is our hope at that this issue might offer additional insights and resources to meet the needs of these times.
