This introductory experiential workshop will introduce participants to this powerful means for personal and therapeutic exploration and growth. No previous theater experience is necessary. Shy people are welcome!

Drama Therapy is an active, experiential approach to facilitating change. It is the intentional use of drama and/or theater processes to achieve therapeutic goals. Through storytelling, projective play, purposeful improvisation, and performance, drama therapy invites people to rehearse desired behaviors, practice being in relationship, expand and find flexibility between life roles, and perform the change they wish to be and see in the world.
