What is Drama Therapy?

Drama Therapy is simply the addition of dramatic techniques to traditional talk therapy. It is an “active, experiential approach to facilitating change” (Nadta.org). Drama therapy lets the client distance themselves from their concerns, allowing them to take on a new perspective. Drama therapy makes use of one’s body far more than traditional talk therapy, allowing for deeper healing to occur. Drama therapy frequently makes use of playful techniques, bringing a new dimension to therapy.
