what is dramatherapy?

Dramatherapy is one of the creative arts therapies: this means it uses elements of drama and creative techniques to achieve therapeutic outcomes. The focus is on the process rather than producing a piece of performance. The aim is to offer a space for expression and reflection in a safe environment.

Dramatherapy can be brief or long term and has its heart in the therapeutic relationship; supporting and nurturing personal growth.

Dramatherapy invites clients to work spontaneously. This may simply be talking or using a variety of verbal and non verbal techniques which may include:

exploring stories, scripts and roles
verbal and non-verbal communication
movement, body and voice work
creative and expressive methods,
such as sculpting and art

Emphasis on choice is promoted to establish a sense of ownership for each person with their work.
