This processing will occur through the use of action methods like role-playing, projective techniques, and psychodramatic techniques as well as conversation/reflection to explore relevant issues in the treatment process. The internship will occur at two different clinical settings but not limit to hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, special education facilities, prisons, day treatment programs, and acute care facilities. Students work with on-site supervisors with whom they meet regularly, and a classroom teacher who guides them through a range of clinical issues including transference and contrertransference, parallel process, diagnosis and evaluation, and professional orientation and ethic in the profession of drama therapy.
