Drama therapy is an eclectic form of creative arts therapy, in which role-playing, improvisation, psychodrama, storytelling, masks, puppets, and performance are used to promote growth, transformation, and healing. This course is an opportunity to explore oneself in relation to others through the medium of drama. Drama therapy techniques are practiced in class both for the personal growth of students and to demonstrate the philosophies and methods of clinical and theater theorists. The course combines experiential and didactic activities. Readings, journal writing, and active participation in class are required. Certificate students must register in person with a certificate registration form signed by the program coordinator. Call 212.229.5567 or email CATinfo@newschool.edu for an advising appointment.
