Therapy, Projection, and Shadow Theatre

Playing with light against a giant cotton screen, I introduced students of the Expressive Arts Therapy Program at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology to Shadow Theatre as a projective Drama Therapy Technique to process trauma. Drawing from the strengths based, community oriented approach that Shadow Liberation embodies, we focussed on how Shadow Theatre can be used in Therapy to support the development of emotional regulation and self soothing capacity.
