Drama Therapy Career Opportunities


Graduates are employed in a variety of therapeutic settings throughout the world, including hospitals, drug rehabilitation centers, public and private mental health clinics, nursing homes, and centers for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Drama therapists work in medical facilities as well as artistic ones, in social services as well as private practice.

Although drama therapy is a relatively new profession, it is practiced widely with a number of special populations: war veterans, victims of trauma, substance abusers, mentally ill individuals, the elderly, prisoners and ex-offenders, and children who have been physically and/or sexually abused.

Drama therapists also treat dysfunctional families and, more generally, healthy individuals in need of exploring significant life problems.
