woman's self-identification. The study participants were 6 middle-aged women who were Christian living in
a city. They received group art therapy utilizing a bibliodrama. This three week-long therapy ran a total of
9 sessions from March 10th to 24th, 2012, three sessions every Saturday, each session two hours long. The
instruments included a 20 item self-identification scale by Lee(1997), revised from Dignan (1965)'s
self-identification scale. Data were analyzed using Wilcoxon signed-rank test. Each session was videotaped
for a qualitative analysis to detect any progress throughout the sessions. First, this study found that group
art therapy utilizing a bibliodrama was effective in improving the participants' self-identification. Second, the
