DRAMATHERAPY IN SCHOOLS
Often in schools, students find it difficult to cope with the stress of exams and the perpetual pressure and demands for excellence. Dramatherapy can be a useful avenue for students to relieve and manage their stress.
Students also go through a variety of social stresses in school that they are often unable to express or handle. This may be in the form of bullying or teenage relationships, or could also be related to stress in their home environment. Young people are typically not equipped to understand or deal with such problems, and often react in ways that may be harmful to themselves or to others around them. Dramatherapy provides them an outlet to open up about these issues in a safe and contained safe, and helps them deal with it through the creative medium of drama.
