The Living Arts Counseling Center Presents:
FREE Introduction to Drama Therapy Workshop
Saturday, June 9th, 2012
3:00pm - 5:30pm
1453 Mission Street, Room 216
Drama Therapy uses acting, improvisation, theatre games, and psychodrama as tools for personal growth and change. It is playful, yet sparks insight. It promotes spontaneity, creativity, and expressiveness. This workshop introduces participants to this powerful means for changing self-defeating patterns and practicing new roles and constructive behaviors. No previous theatre experience is necessary. Shy people are welcome!
