Introduction to Drama and Movement Therapy
Dramatherapy uses theatre, movement, music, myths, poetry and other arts to create spaces for healing, belonging and transformation.
Through the support and the guidance of the therapist the person or the group crafts a creative and safe environment, to explore themselves and how they relate with each other, expressing emotions and cultivating insights through embodiment, imagination and play.
The aim of this introductory course is to offer the opportunity to the participants to explore the experiential and theoretical aspects of Dramatherapy, acquiring and developing new tools for their everyday work and life. We are going to learn in a playful and rigorous environment some of the tools, techniques and practices of this method of psychotherapy whilst taking into consideration the professional practices and approaches of the participants, their dilemmas, aspirations and needs for development regarding the communities and contexts they work with.
