What is therapeutic drama and how can it help my child?
Through Therapeutic Drama, your child will be able to explore thoughts, feelings and emotions through drama and begin to develop their confidence, problem solving and conflict resolution as well building friendships and providing a sense of achievement. Positive experiences in therapeutic drama can also help support your child’s learning at school. Each session begins with team games before moving on to look at a drama activity to tackle a specific area. This may be ‘family sculpt’ where the children turn the other participants into pictures that represent their family and identify strong relationships, or ‘forum theatre’ where the children are given a scenario to act out, the scenario will involve a moment of conflict for a character and the children then become the director by stopping and changing the action.
