drama therapy

Drama therapy (or therapy through theatre) means to apply the techniques and means that are specific to theatre, into the group therapy for special needs persons.

Drama therapists work in psychiatric hospitals, prisons and special schools, and also in the community. Although essentially Drama therapy is a group activity, it can also be applied to persons individually.**

Using marionettes theatre in therapy is a way to develop expression and communication of children and adults, in case there are difficulties in their direct verbal communication. This type of theatre is usually integrated in the practice of drama therapy and it is not considered a therapeutically practice of its own.

** This is a profession that is officially recognised in Great Britain having the title of “protected status”; this can be used if only the person practicing is registered at the National Council for professions in Health field.
