Humor in Drama Therapy

By Angela Tauber

Abstract

This theoretical research paper examines humor in drama therapy through the analysis of existing psychotherapy literature and drama therapy literature. Common themes surrounding humor use in drama therapy includes strengthening group and therapeutic alliances, creating and maintaining dramatic distancing, processing and going further, and performance. Analysis of data shows that humor could potentially used to the benefit of clients as long as it is used with discretion and with the clients’ best interests in mind. Further research on the subject of humor in drama therapy, such as interviewing currently practicing drama therapists, is recommended
