Drama and Movement Therapy
Pupils have the opportunity to work with dramatic representation of events and worries that in real life were previously too difficult or indeed frightening. In the context of a drama therapy session the students are offered permission to explore different aspects of their personality and play with alternative ways of ‘being’. This gives them a safe context whilst increasing their confidence to manage behaviours that may overwhelm them in the classroom.
Pupils are referred for Expressive Arts Therapy when a need for this type of therapeutic support has been identified by teaching staff and discussed and agreed with parents.
