If you are a mental health professional who is interested in writing a paper for one of our upcoming productions (or have a completed paper that is relevant), please Contact Us. We are particularly interested in specific theoretical and clinical articles which discuss content that can be used as through-line material for our dramatic productions. We are also interested in broader theoretical and clinical topics relating to our productions and want to invite the full range of theoretical disciplines in the mental health community in order to enrich our discourse. With your permission, your paper may be posted on our website, and you will have the opportunity to present it to an audience before or after one of our performances. If you prefer, an abstract of the paper you will be presenting may be posted on the company website in lieu of the full paper. As an alternative to formal paper presentations, you may choose to prepare an abstract (without a full paper) which you can then use to generate a discussion with our audience. This is an opportunity to work with our artistic team and theater company, and to perhaps expand the bounds of your own intellectual and creative process!
