Drama Therapy

In theater therapy, he examines his client’s feelings, problems, personal story with his theater items. Problems, emotions, thoughts are rendered with the roles, objects, stories and movement.

It is possible to approach both problems and the distance with the theater, so different relations are established with the help of the theater with the problems.

The counselor may be in the role of an audience or an observer as well as an actor. He can look at himself from the outside and thus see the big picture.

One can better understand himself / herself in this process.

A “playground” is created in the workshop. This area is not likely to be false or mistaken. Approaching the problem without the possibility of hurting or hurting the person removes the necessity to restrict itself. He may be curious about people’s questions and problems.

From time to time, the therapist directs to work as a director or observer from time to time in order to support the person and facilitate his process. By inviting creativity, problem solving presents the possibilities that the deceased person has not thought of before.

With the help of the therapist, the roles are tried, the objects and roles are given different purposes and assignments, and the life is practically rehearsed, and naturally there is room for change.

Probing is the option that the client can get help to feel secure, to get close to the problem, to get away from the problem, or to avoid the indirect way (with the help of symbols, metaphor, fictitious stories).

Just like the reflection of the daily life on the playing field, the healthy relationship established with the problems in the game state is also reflected in daily life.
