    Taxonomy Code: RP-8000.1750

    Programs that offer a form of therapy which uses improvisation, role-play, mime, puppetry, storytelling and other theatrical techniques to help individuals with mental, physical or developmental disabilities, substance use disorders, chronic health conditions or other problems explore painful life experiences through an indirect approach. Drama therapy helps people solve a problem, achieve a catharsis, delve into truths about themselves, explore and transcend unhealthy patterns of interaction, gain insight and achieve personal growth through identification with a character in a story and the ability to access emotional and psychological problems through metaphor.
