DRAMA THERAPY ALTERNATIVE TRAINING PROGRAM
WHAT IS DRAMA THERAPY?
Drama therapy is the intentional use of theatre techniques to facilitate personal growth and promote health, thus treating individuals with a range of mental health, cognitive and developmental disorders. The Center for Creative Arts Therapy is one of the first organizations in the central region to develop an academic program leading to Alternative Training in Drama Therapy. Graduates of the program will have met the academic requirements for Registered Drama Therapist (RDT). Once graduates are registered, they will be entitled to practice drama therapy throughout North America.
