Ferrara DSM


Art and art techniques through different codes, involving music, dance, drawing, and theatre have helped innovative process to come about in therapy and rehabilitation processes.

Especially theatre is a powerful therapy tool, due to its close connection with artistic and creative expression, and the related processes of emotion-regulation and cognitive transformation. Theatre allows to stimulate, develop and enhance intellectual, cognitive, communication, relational, self-expression and artistic competences. Patients improve their knowledge of the self by playing the role of someone else, by using imagination for a creative purpose and by expressing their emotions on stage, learning to balance and manage them. They also develop their flexibility and adjustment skills, they refine their communication skills and learn how to interact in a more appropriate way in the theatre context and, subsequently, in a broader relational and social environment. Theatre also offers job opportunities. It encourages resuming education or professional training programmes. It improves quality of life. It stimulates active citizenship. It creates culture. It offers positive visibility to actors, fighting prejudices. It brings about change in those who perform and those who watch.
