The study of theatre is of great value to psychologists because it is a vital part of life. This text presents an analysis of what psychology has to offer for actors, musicians, singers and dancers. It makes suggestions about how the particular stresses that performers are under can be managed. There are examples, or "Spotlights", giving focused explanations of topics that are self-contained within the text. Drawing on numerous practical examples from the arts as well as scientific and clinical research, the work should be a useful resource for students, professionals and amateurs alike.
