Drama and Movement Therapy, MA // Study at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, London
An intensive programme providing professional and vocational training in drama and movement therapy and the Sesame approach, approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This course offers a particular pedagogic approach to learning the craft of dramatherapy, which is underpinned by Jungian psychology and the importance of practice-based learning.
This course combines intensive movement-based studio practice, collaborative facilitations, seminars, and a shared research unit with other MA students which creates a learning environment that encourages personal exploration, collaboration and critical reflection.
The Sesame approach is underpinned by Jungian psychology and draws together Laban movement, play theory, Billy Lindkvist’s work with movement with touch and sound, and a mythopoetic approach to the psyche.
There is also the opportunity for immersive practice in the key subject areas of Laban movement, myth, movement with touch and sound, and drama. This is allied with studies in developmental and analytical psychology, specifically the work of Jung.
The group process is central to the student experience and supported by a weekly session across the first three terms that explores interpersonal dynamics between members and draws from group analytic theory.
