Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

‘Ian Robertson and Katerina Couroucli-Robertson’s new book is a compelling argument for applying dramatherapy to the treatment of women who struggle with obesity. They describe a highly creative process thoughtfully and sensitively. In the end, the validation for their work lies in both the creative process of dramatherapy and in the relationship they foster with the clients, which, over time, yields significant change.’
— Robert Landy, PhD, Professor of Educational Theatre and Applied Psychology, Founding Director, Drama Therapy Program, New York University

Larger than Life is a very important book both for dramatherapists and for people working with obesity issues. It contains detailed descriptions of the six people involved in the therapy, the methods and techniques, outcome interviews and therapeutic reflections. A must for all psychotherapists, their clients and their families.’
— Sue Jennings, Leader of Research at the Institute of Neuro-Dramatic-Play, Honorary Professor at the University of Derby, and Professor of Play, European Dramatherapy Federation
