Testimonial from Licensed Social Worker and Drama Therapy student who completed the Principles of Drama Therapy course in 2016

"I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful experience I was fortunate to have! You were an amazing teacher and I feel like I really gained a good understanding for the foundations of DT.  Taking the Principles of Drama Therapy course with Brooke was nothing short of an amazing experience. I was able to develop an understanding of the fundamentals of drama therapy with a personalized curriculum that was centered around the needs of the students. Professionally, our experiential work helped me connect more deeply to the theories. Personally, I gained new insight and perspective within myself. I would highly recommend signing up for any upcoming courses Brooke has to offer! Kelly Rice


This class is for Alternate Track Drama Therapy students, social workers, counselors, teachers, teaching artists, parents, and healing professionals to practically apply to their work and to expand their skill sets and grow professionally. 

SCHEDULE: Meets for 3 weekends (March 9-11th, April 13-15th, and May 4th-6th in my Livingston, NJ and Cranford, NJ offices)

This 3 credit 45 hour class is mandated to take to become a professional Registered Drama Therapist and is approved by the National Association for Drama Therapy. Certificates provided upon completion. 

This is my third year instructing this class and I’m offering it based on a need.

 Course Requirements

 

Regular Attendance and Active Class Participation

Drama therapy is an experiential therapy.  You can’t learn it just by reading about it or talking about it – you have to DO IT!. 

Lead a drama therapy warm-up  

Each student will lead a drama therapy warm-up during the week.  You can choose a warm-up from the text or invent one of your own. Write in your journal about why you chose this warm-up, how it went, what you would improve on (if anything) the next time you use it, with whom/where you would use it, and your reactions to leading the group.  Warms-ups should address cognitive, emotional, and physical aspects.

-- Elevator Speech on Drama Therapy

Each student will arrange a time to give an “elevator speech” to the instructor on what drama therapy is.  The purpose of this is to rehearse what you would say to someone you meet who has never heard of drama therapy in order to define it for them clearly and succinctly.

Journal   Do: Every day during the week....DUE: every Friday after class.

Each student will keep a journal in order to record techniques, theories, questions, insights, and reactions to the experiences in the course and in the readings.  This will provide students with a method for putting ideas together through self-dialogue and create an idea book with techniques for the future.  In addition to taking notes in class, you should spend at least an hour after each class day writing about your reactions to the day’s activities and discussions.  You might also need to add reflections after the week of class.

--Papers

Write three papers on your understanding of Role-Theory, Play Back Theatre, Psychodrama due at the end of the training.

--Presentation

The presentation of an autobiographical performance piece, representing an unresolved issue in your life, as manifest in role/counterrole/guide. This is to be a one-person piece.
