For thousands of years drama has been used in healing rituals and has morphed with noted therapeutic values. Drama is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance.


For many people the word drama is connected with theatre. There is a difference. Drama is a personal experience (the word comes from the Greek drao: “I do” or “struggle”) and theatre is communicating the experience to others (the word comes from the Greek theatron: “a place for seeing/showing”). It can be helpful to communicate how we are struggling, to do so in action, not just in words.
