ADCR-  Association of Dramatherapists of Czech republic

  

Introduction

 

This Code Of Practice was created at the turn of the 2008 and 2009 by the preparatory committee of the Czech Dramatherapy Association (ADCR) as an aggregate of directions and norms to better define the conduct of practitioners within dramatherapy so that his/her practice will be of an avail for the all parties involved in the therapy, education and training, research and, in a broader perspective, for the whole community.

ADCR’s Code Of Practice is interconnected with the other ADCR documents, namely with the Statutes and Standards.

Whereas the Standards strive to describe the basic areas, ideas and objectives of dramatherapist to define his/her specific profile/status among the other types/styles of therapy, the Code Of Practice is focused on the inner principles of the conduct of dramatherapist as a person; it points on his/her responsibilities and reminds of the limits, infringing of which would bring him/her into conflict with the professional body of ADCR and also with him/her self.

Code Of Practice is subject to the valid Czech Law.
