the 9 core processes through which drama therapy facilitates
The processes and techniques used in drama therapy are varied and will likely be unfamiliar to a psychologist who has not studied this specific form of therapy. Drama therapy uses exercises rooted in a theater to help participants express themselves and gain new insights about themselves and others.
The nine core processes through which drama therapy facilitates change in participants include:
Dramatic projection – a technique that allows participants to project their inner feelings and work their issues out onto a role or object.
Personification and impersonation – two different techniques in which participants can express their own personal material through role play or onto an object.
Interactive audience and witnessing – refers to the participant, the group, and/or the client in the role of audience or witness.
Playing – an attitude characterized by spontaneous problem-solving, in which a play space is staked out, objects are actively repurposed into new roles, and allowances are made for changes.
Drama - therapeutic empathy and distancing – the ability of the participants to engage or disengage with the material that resonates with their personal problems and inner conflicts.
Life-drama connection – a process in which participants analyze their personal problems or issues through dramatic projection.
Transformation – an inherent aspect of much of what happens in theater and in play, built right into the structure of telling a story.
Embodiment – the physical expression of personal material (can be actual or envisioned).
Therapeutic performance processes – these processes refer to the therapeutic use of theatrical performance to work through the participants’ personal issues and themes.
