An exciting feature of our curriculum is the introduction of DRAMA THERAPY into the classroom situation. This has brought about some significant changes in the children. The Western concept of Drama Therapy has been translated into our own Indian cultural idiom. Creative drama, story dramatization and play are all used for informal drama in which the dramatic theme is developed with improvised dialogue and action with active participation of the children.

Drama Therapy will cover education, psychological and emotional problems in school-going children as well as adults needing this intervention and introduce techniques of problem solving and issues related to low self esteem, lack of confidence, confronting bullies and other everyday issues which are so often swept under the carpet for want of help.

Our drama therapy efforts began as a programme called THE A.R.T.S which is an abbreviation for art, recreation, therapy and song and was a Saturday programme catering initially only to adolescent intellectually disabled persons who had no opportunities for meaningful recreation or leisure activities. This was streamlined into using the medium of the arts as specific therapy and particular Drama with its components of music, rhythm, movement, song and dance through interaction with the British Institute of Drama Therapists and through workshops conducted specifically for SAMADHAN by professional drama therapists of this Institute.
