Drama Therapy

Drama therapy is a type of therapy that uses theatrical techniques and concepts to bring about meaningful change. We take children through drama therapy to give a way to express their feelings, interact with others, and rehearse healthy behaviors. It is intended to help the physically challenged kids to explore their inner experience and break them out of any rigid roles or frameworks they have been limiting themselves to. They can express themselves while sharing a new side to their personality, or dig up an old one long forgotten.

Our goals of drama therapy are often described as follows:

  1. Promote positive behavioral changes
  2. Improve interpersonal relationship skills
  3. Integrate physical and emotional well-being
  4. Achieve personal growth and self-awareness
  5. Improve overall quality of life

Aside from tackling these larger, overall goals, drama therapy can also benefit participants by providing them with the opportunity to:

  • Express their feelings
  • Tell their story
  • Act out/work out issues and problems
  • Relive their symptoms
  • Achieve emotional and physical integration
  • Experience catharsis
  • Expand their depth of inner experiences
  • Boost their self-confidence
  • Improve their self-esteem
  • Increase their sense of play and spontaneity
  • Develop trust
  • Work out relationship issues
  • Improve their interpersonal/social skills
  • Strengthen or expand their personal life roles
  • Increase their mental and emotional flexibility
