About drama therapy


Drama therapy is a field founded in the notion that storytelling and ritual are as ancient as the human experience. Drama therapists use storytelling, improvisation, performance, text, metaphor, and play with objects to help you explore your issues. This way of working allows you to create the distance necessary to examine and contain personal and sometimes emotionally loaded material.

Drama therapy is a licensed field of practice in New York State through the LCAT (Licensed Creative Arts Therapist) as well as nationally by the RDT (Registered Drama Therapist) license. LCATs and RDTs hold Masters degrees from accredited training programs and undergo professional supervision and yearly continuing education throughout their careers.
