I just got back from our first session with a new group, using drama therapy for people living with dementia.
It was incredible. When you practice drama therapy, you have your own expectations and goals but you can never exactly predict what will happen.
Today was beyond my expectations ... to see someone with very limited motor skills (this person had two carers stabilising her when she arrived), be able to get out of her chair and cross the room by herself, to be part of a story being acted out was inspiring. The power and persistence that was shown was simply amazing.
Roll on next week to be blown away again! If there was ever a need at times to motivate us to do what we do, sessions like today’s was all the reason necessary.
