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

Dramatherapy is being regulated by the British Association of Dramatherapists and the Health Professions Council

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. 

The workshop is addressed to professionals and students of health, social and humanistic professions, movement practitioners, actors, educators, dancers and improvisers, as well as anyone else who would be interested to acquire more knowledge and skills in Dramatherapy.

Organized by

ANAMUH - Arts for Dialogue

ANAMUH is a not-for-profit social initiative aimed at establishing and sustaining a space for communitarian dialogue through the use of Theatre and Arts.

We are a group of enthusiast socially-committed artists and theatre practitioners: we believe that Theatre and Arts can make a sustainable positive change within people, in communities, in society.
We believe in Social Theatre and the enormous potential for positive social transformation that it offers, to foster inter-communitarian dialogue, to challenge stereotypes/discrimination, to build bridges among individuals and cultures.
We periodically organize and facilitate various training courses and workshops on various arts and disciplines, open to anyone willing to explore, transform, find inspiration and connection.
ANAMUH envisions a world where diverse communities know, respect and include each other, and where they grow together creating new ideas, tastes and forms of art on the basis of their own identities and cultures.
