What is Drama Therapy?
"Drama Therapy is an active, experiential approach to facilitating change. Through storytelling, projective play, purposeful improvisation, and performance, participants are invited 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." - North American Drama Therapy Association
Drama Therapy is appropriate for the multidisciplinary treatment of chronic and pervasive mental illness, acute crisis, grief counselling, child and adolescent treatment, adult and older adult treatment, developmental and physical disabilities, trauma informed care, among many other medical and psychological treatments.
Drama Therapists are often seen in hospitals, schools, senior living facilities, private practice, addiction treatment facilities, clinics, and anywhere a therapist may be present.
Mallory is a proud member of the North American Drama Therapy Association (NADTA) which is the regulating governing body for the profession of drama therapists in North America.
