'This new edition contains significant new research and thinking by one of the world's foremost thinkers and practitioners of drama education. It is a must-buy book for anyone interested in drama education from beginning teachers to experienced specialists. With Drama in Mind skilfully combines theory and practice in an accessible and user-friendly language. I couldn't recommend it more highly.' Peter O'Connor, Associate Professor and Director of the Critical Research Unit in Applied Theatre, University of Auckland, New Zealand
'What Patrice Baldwin understands and communicates so well in With Drama in Mind is the understanding that we are childlike in nature throughout life. To engage in drama is to accelerate and sophisticate the process by which human brains learn best through play-based learning systems where tensions and conflicts unique to our species can be safely and productively explored and conquered. Bravo!' Xan S. Johnson, PhD., Professor of Theatre and Child Drama Specialist, University of Utah, USA
'A fascinating and well-researched book which details the obvious but long-missed point that experience influences brain development and learning. Through practical teaching ideas Patrice Baldwin demonstrates why drama teaching is so essential to the development of all children. Part guide and part pedagogy, this book empowers teachers to choose appropriate drama techniques, listen to their pupils and adapt approaches.' Kevin Piper, Education Consultant and Director of Creative Education, UK
