Course summary

Summary

Become a qualified dramatherapist with this unique programme at Roehampton. It offers a theoretical, experiential and clinical exploration of ritual and drama for working with others to facilitate healing and positive change in a variety of clinical settings.

The MA Dramatherapy programme at Roehampton offers a ritual theatre form of dramatherapy. Influenced by key theatrical figures and explored from anthropological, political, psychological perspectives, the programme offers a clearly structured developmental learning process mirroring the clinical application of dramatherapy at various levels.

The programme offers theatre skills, movement, working with stories and myths, Growtowski’s paratheatrical techniques, crafting theatres of the psyche, working with our own internal dramas and the use of ‘rites of passage’ within ritual theatre. There are opportunities to work with other art forms and to learn different theoretical perspectives through embodied learning.

On this course, you will learn to facilitate an in-depth therapeutic process for a range of client groups, and devise therapeutic performances and workshops. You will also undertake an original piece of research into dramatherapy practice. The course is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and leads to a nationally-recognised professional qualification.

Career prospects

Dramatherapists are employed across the spectrum of health and social care, education and forensic services. Dramatherapists may also operate in private therapy, training and consultancy practice.
