Dramatherapy Network

News Update October 2004 from Rowan Studio


These News Updates have been very intermittent over the last two years and looking back I realised what a dramatic statement I had made! I was giving up all dramatherapy and related work in 2002 - well - here I am still 'in the field' A little more understanding, new challenges and opportunities. Still very much the dramatherapist but perhaps a new lens to my glasses: trying to integrate a 'nature' and 'theatre' centred way of working rather than the hierarchy of the 'person' centered model.

Dramatherapy Training

The Dramatherapy training courses at York and Hertfordshire have closed - I was instrumental in setting up both of them back in the '70s - I do have to acknowledge their passing with some sadness. However the Institute of Dramatherapy training which became the post-graduate diploma and now MA at University of Roehampton is vigorous and innovative. Steve Mitchell has sadly retired as director, and Ditty Dockter is the new course convenor. Ditty brings a wealth of experience from her many years at Hertfordshire and extensive research in cross-cultural dramatherapy to her new post. The Sesame course at Central School continues to flourish and is now the oldest established Drama and Movement in therapy training, together with the Exeter University Dramatherapy MA, (formally at Torquay). Roehampton, Sesame, Exeter and Manchester are the four accredited and approved dramatherapy training courses in the UK. We will be carrying more information on these courses on this site.

Dramatherapy Short Courses

Courses are run by Rowan Studio in Glastonbury and may be booked for other organisations. Topics 2004/2005 include: working with abuse, listening to children's stories, emotional literacy, re-staging your life, masks and puppets in dramatherapy and play therapy.
