Dramatherapists case study

What does a Dramatherapist do?

Dramatherapists are both clinicians and artists that draw on their knowledge of theatre and therapy to use as a medium for psychological therapy that may include drama, story-making, music, movement, and art; to work with any issue that has presented itself; from autism to dementia to abuse and mental illness. Dramatherapists can be found in many varying settings such as schools, mental health care, general health social care, prisons and in the voluntary sector. Though vocalisation and storymaking are integral parts of dramatherapy, the practice does not necessarily rely on spoken language alone to resolve what a pupil, client, or patient may wish to explore.
