An evaluation of mythodrama intervention among middle school students (2012)


Lahab Al-Samarrai

This study utilizes Allan Guggenbuhl’s seven-step Mythodrama method of resolving conflict and bullying in a school setting which has proven successful in Europe, applies to a school setting in the United States, and measure that application to see if this intervention for addressing conflict and bullying is successful in a setting in the United States. Pre-and post-testing was conducted and some statistically significant improvement post-intervention was found. Study results suggest this methodology would have efficacy when applied broadly in US schools.
