Trauma Drama is an immersive group intervention which engages youth and young adults in cooperative play activities, improv techniques and theatrical skits creating opportunities for self-expression, cognitive flexibility, creative problem solving, conflict resolution, and enhanced sense of personal agency.
Trauma Drama was adapted from the evidence-based Urban Improv youth violence prevention curriculum and was designed to integrate the core components of complex trauma intervention with youth.
Trauma Drama program is developed and offered by the Boston-based Complex Trauma Institute and implemented in Savannah through a collaborative effort between Front Porch Improv and Chatham County Safety Net Planning Council.
