Article: Day by Day – Role Theory, Sociometry and Psychodrama with Adolescents and Young Women.
Monday 4 October 2021 from 12 noon to 1 p.m

I like revisiting familiar pieces of writing to find comfort. I have read the article, Day by Day—Role Theory, Sociometry, and Psychodrama With Adolescents and Young Women (authored by Sue Daniel) a few times in the past. A few of my favourite phrases from the article are: –
‘…every moment is new‘ (first paragraph) and ‘…to work with “what is” is a pleasure because it is real’ (last page, in the conclusion).
While returning to this article recently, I savoured the progressive roles that Imogen, Jane & Gina found in their exploration. I hope you, too, can locate a few words, phrases or moments from this article that you like for our upcoming reading group. Jaya.
