Drama Therapy


Drama therapy is the intentional use of theatrical processes for therapeutic goals. It uses theater and drama, as well as the processes inside theater and drama – like improvisation, role playing, role analysis, and creative play – toward the achievement of psychological growth. This can look a lot of different ways – sometimes it may mean improving social skills, sometimes it means processing trauma, other times it means identifying triggers for anxiety and/or working through anxiety. Drama therapy approaches are dependent on each client's treatment goals, individual needs, and comfort level. It’s a very customizable approach!
