What is drama therapy and how does it work?
Drama Therapy is a client centered action orientated creative exploration of the human condition. Clients and therapists work together to achieve consistent growth through the client’s individual creative means of expression. Clients develop the tools to become their own guide in working through both their personal and therapeutic goals. The North American Drama Therapy Association describes drama therapy as an approach that:“…can provide the content for participants to tell their stories, set goals and solve problems, express feelings, or achieve catharsis.” Drama therapists utilize many forms of creative expression including Drama, Music, Dance, Video, Poetry, Photography, and Art. Drama Therapists may also use objects such as puppets, scarves, and musical instruments. You can learn more about Drama Therapy at the
