Some, if not most people find it difficult to display emotion and express how they feel or bring to light undealt issues of the past. I'm sometimes a culprit of this. Drama and play therapy brings theatre processes into a space which encourages either groups or individuals to express and work through emotions and 'stuck' issues.
Welma de Beer has over thirty years worth of experience in working with children, adolescents and adults; be it as a drama therapist, lecturer, teacher or a drama practitioner. As a practice, drama therapy is found in many 'mainstream' institutions such as voluntary oragnisations and NPOs, mainstream and special needs schools, National Health Service institutions and private hospitals.
Working on this project with Welma was loads of fun from collaborating on the colour scheme to late night phone calls trying to decide where content should go or if there was enough content all together!
"Play is a child's natural medium for self-expression."
