This training is designed to offer the learner the historical and philosophical foundations of the field as well as its sources in theatre and counseling/psychotherapy. Each approach is presented with specific attention to applications and client populations and students will facilitate various training exercises using these various approaches. At the core of this professional body of work is a rich and deep understanding of how creativity and creative process builds an integrative foundation for healing, transformation, human development and spiritual practice.
Our certificate program is designed to meet the standards of the North American Drama Therapy Association (NADTA) as an ‘Alternative Track Training’ program that can lead towards a credential as a RDT-Registered Drama Therapist through the NADTA.

This interactive workshop offers creative ways to get started in using narradrama. Participants will explore the eight-step narradrama process – beginning with descriptions of identity through action techniques, which then makes a transition into externalization using drama, masks, objects and art. There will also be opportunities for role expansion and restorying through story, living sculpture, improvisations, and photography. By the end of the workshop, each participant will walk away with the basic principles of narradrama, as well as have the tools to take these methods into their own life and work in both clinical and educational settings. Class also covers connections and research between neuroscience and narradrama.
