Exploring the Concepts of Power and Oppression
through Drama Therapy

In this presentation, the facilitators will integrate techniques from Theatre of the Oppressed and Playback Theatre to invite dialogue about multicultural factors to promote community and reflection. The dialogue and interaction between the audience and presenters serves as a framework to encourage narratives that foster meaning.At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to
- Describe and practice 2 techniques (embodied and narrative) to assist clients in becoming more familiar with their own areas of power and privilege.
- Name a minimum of 2 therapeutic actions that can be achieved with clients using drama therapy techniques.
