Comments about Master of Arts in Creative Art Therapies (Drama Therapy) - At the institution - Montreal - Québec

  • Objectives
    The MA in Creative Arts Therapies, Drama Therapy Option, is an intensive two-year preparation for professional competence in the implementation of the dramatic arts in therapy. It is designed to educate and train drama therapists who will function as competent primary or adjunct professionals in their field with a strong sense of ethical and social responsibility. As mentioned above, the Drama Therapy Option was designed to meet the program requirements of the Education Committee of the National Association for Drama Therapy, and formal approval by the NADT was awarded in 2000.
  • Practical experience
    Practicum placements in drama therapy are central to student learning experience. Practicum experience entails observing and working with health care professionals, as well as direct contact with patients. Skill in the implementation of the principles and practices of drama therapy is developed on site in fieldwork/practicum placements that are extensively supervised by a variety of experienced practitioners. Practicum sites for drama therapy students include hospital and health care institutions, community centres, geriatric facilities, and schools. Ideas for research which emerge from this hands-on experience become the basis for case studies, research papers, and special projects.
