Dramatherapy

Our proposal is for a Dramatherapist to work with women and children living in our refuges. Dramatherapy draws on the healing potential of Drama and Movement and can offer many benefits to people who have experienced the trauma of domestic abuse.

Situation

Women affected by domestic abuse often report that the hardest part of escaping and recovering from domestic abuse is dealing with psychological scars which can include low self esteem, distorted self image, suicidal behaviour, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. People living with abuse often develop coping strategies that negatively affect their health including alcohol and drug abuse, self harm, self imposed isolation and neglect, eating disorders and aggressive or passive behaviour.

Solution

We have had a very generous offer of support from a qualified Dramatherapist, who is offering to work with women and children living in our refuges for one session per month. Her approach is client led and can offer many benefits to people who have experienced the trauma of domestic abuse. We believe that dramatherapy will make a valuable addition to the work of our support workers in empowering our residents to take control, move on in their lives and build their self-confidence.
