4th European Dramatherapy Conference

Borders in Action

27-28 April 2018, Nürtingen, Germany


Dear dramatherapy friends in Europe, here is our call for papers.


During the first three EFD conferences held in Athens, Bucharest and Gent, we met and got to know each other as well as the situation regarding dramatherapy in Europe.

The next conference, Dramatherapy in Europe: Borders in Action, will be held in Nürtingen in 2018 and we would like to focus on the subject “Borders” with which we, as dramatherapists, have to work daily.

Such as: refugees, borderline, losing control, living on the border, living between borders, learning to accept the border, living borderless, searching for identity and being cut off, prison work, Brexit etc., for example: “Hospice work”, “The border between life and death”, or various conditions where setting borders is an issue (“where am I, where is the next person”), e.g. depressions and personality disorders.

We invite you to give a workshop that lasts two, three or six hours or present a paper lasting 30 minutes or make a performance (maximum 15 minutes).

Please submit your proposal using the following form to E-Mail address:


The deadline for submissions is 30 November 2017.
