Dramatherapy with adult survivors of sexual abuse

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts was the venue for the British Association of Dramatherapists’ most recent training event on Saturday 7th March 2015. Dr Bruce Howard Bayley and Madeline Anderson-Warren, both exemplary leads in the profession of Dramatherapy, facilitated a most inspiring and deeply thought provoking day on “Dramatherapy with adult survivors of sexual abuse”.

Stories at home attended as so many of the people I work with have survived all types of abuse, including sexual abuse .It is an extraordinarily emotive subject , and I was left emotionally exhausted at the end of the day, but learnt so much. It was also assuring to have so much of my practice and theoretical thinking affirmed. The facilitators were not shy of the taboo areas around this subject matter, which is vital for us as Therapists whose job it is to bear, with the people who come to us for therapy, the most intolerable and painful of experiences
