arts psychotherapies

In drama psychotherapy the therapist enables people to use drama and theatre to explore their beliefs, attitudes and feelings and try out new, alternative ways of acting and being in the world.

This can include role-play, improvisation, story, mime, puppets, theatre, games, masks, object, and text work. Drama psychotherapy can work effectively at a symbolic level, so that someone may temporarily concentrate on the drama, becoming less self-preoccupied and better able to find resolution.

It gives people permission to experiment with different kinds of behaviour and ways of being with others and thereby discover and develop aspects of themselves which they may wish to change.

Role reversal, enables the individual to gain insight into both how others may feel and how others perceive them.
