Studying on the Drama and Movement Therapy course at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, you will:
- Receive HCPC approved vocational training in the Sesame Approach to dramatherapy
- Use a critical framework of Jungian psychology combined with contemporary theories in intersubjectivity and developmental psychology
- Obtain apprenticeship model placements within NHS institutions, voluntary and education sectors with supervision
The Sesame Approach is informed by Jungian psychology and draws together Laban movement, play theory and Billy Lindkvist’s work with movement with touch and sound. Storytelling and image-based practice reflect a mythopoetic approach to the psyche. The combination of movement-based studio practice, collaborative facilitations, seminars and a shared research unit with other MA students creates a learning environment that encourages personal exploration, collaboration and critical reflection.
Particularly in the first year, you will experience immersive practice in the subject areas of Laban movement, myth, movement with touch and sound, and drama. This is allied with studies in developmental and analytical psychology – specifically combining emergent knowledge of intersubjectivity and the work of Jung.
The group process is central to your learning experience and supported by a weekly session across the first year which explores interpersonal dynamics and draws from group analytic theory.
