Introduction to Dramatherapy
What is Dramatherapy?
Dramatherapy is a creative, clinical therapy with its roots in drama and theatre. Dramatherapy uses creative, dramatic structures to allow individuals or group members to examine, re-examine and explore personal and interpersonal, individual and group issues.
Interventions involve a wide range of creative approaches including mime, movement, story making and storytelling, text, mask, ritual, role, puppetry and theatre games. As a creative therapy it has evolved its own body of theoretical thought research and publications over the last thirty years, using many diverse and exciting forms and models.
Dramatherapists practice in a wide range of environments; being employed by the NHS, working in prisons, schools, working with groups and individual clients who have a wide variety of needs and disabilities.
It is not necessary to be a good actor to engage in drama therapy. One of the roles of the drama therapist is to encourage issues in a special, creative, confidential, safe and boundaried space.
