Drama Therapy is a form of Psychotherapy

Drama therapy utilises creative techniques drawn from Drama and Theatre. The techniques used in therapy will depend on what the therapist and client feel would be of the most benefit to the client and is an active, collaborative process.

It can involve creative techniques such as role taking, movement, storytelling and story making, play, drawing, etc. It allows the client to find creative ways in which to express themselves and work through difficulties they might be facing. It does not require the client to perform or be skilled creatively.

Drama Therapy can be highly beneficial to the client. It allows the client the space to express themselves creatively. This can give the client a way to express and process things that may be difficult to express and process directly. Engaging in the creative process also allows the client to discover different perspectives on themselves and others as well as creative solutions to problems they may be experiencing.
