Rebekah Porter

Dramatherapist

 

Creative journeys for life

Since working with Nottingham City Austism Service to pilot the effectiveness of Dramatherapy in 2012 and 2013, Rebekah has an interest in Dramatherapy and Asperger Syndrome as a tool for understanding self and others. It has been a useful, effective and highly accessible approach for developing understanding of self and others, alleviating stress, enabling expression, improving communication, managing situations, developing strategies and integrating ability into diagnosis.

 

Since that time Rebekah has developed a further interest in the area of ASD and related issues affecting a young person's school attendance and the parent:carer relationship. This is an area she is interested in developing in the future. Watch this space and/or get in touch to register your interest using the contact form.

The Dramatherapy and Asperger Syndrome Pathway

 

Thoughts, feelings. situations and relationships can be hard to understand.

 

Thoughts, feelings and problems can be put into a visible clear form. The visible form may be an object, a chair,  a character or other representation.

 

This makes it possible to see thoughts, feelings and situations and begin to understand.

 

The individual can make sense of themselves in a situation, their thoughts, feelings or behaviours.

 

The indiviual may be more able to cope or negotiate particular challenges.
