Dramatherapy is a psychotherapeutic approach that uses art as a medium. The means of Dramatherapy are creative and symbolic expression through painting, clay, movement, relaxation, stories and fairy tales, role playing, improvisation, making masks etc.  An important part of the dramatherapeutic process is also verbal sharing, which is provided on both an individual and group level. 

The individual or the group, through the use of art, delves deeper into the issues it explores, safely retrieving valuable information from the unconscious mind and thus acquiring a clearer perception of these issues. Gradually, a release from traumatic experiences is achieved, which gives a feeling of relief, liberation and ultimately leads the individual to personal evolution and growth.  In Dramatherapy we use art as a means, exclusively to explore individual or group issues and we are not at all concerned about the aesthetic effect.
