According to Anna Boyd, MA, RDT, "... Drama therapy refers to the use of theatrical techniques to promote healing, foster change, and develop personal growth. It is often incorrectly assumed to be a modality limited to children or actors when in fact it can serve as a cathartic, transformative tool in therapy."


It can also be effective in helping adults become "unstuck" in psychotherapy.
