Free Introduction to Drama Therapy

Co-sponsored by the CIIS Drama Therapy Program

Free! Must Pre-Register

- Share your personal stories

- Access your playfulness and creativity

- Discover the power of drama therapy!

Drama therapy is an experiential form of psychotherapy that utilizes improvisation, theatre games and techniques, and psychodrama as tools for personal growth and change. It is playful, yet sparks insight. It promotes spontaneity, creativity, emotional expression, autonomy, and cognitive and behavioral change.

This workshop will introduce participants to this powerful means for changing self-defeating patterns and practicing new roles and constructive behaviors. No previous theater experience is necessary. Shy people are welcome!
