The developmental model of dramatherapy explores the creative life of the clients as part of their whole life journey. The theme of this model is the working and reworking of the life stages and changes of individuals and groups. This kind of working would include the change, flux and transformations experienced through social, cultural and psychological aspects of life: how we struggle to integrate the conflicted elements of experience. When that struggle is explored symbolically through the fictions we create in dramatherapy then the healing process could be described as restoring life through art.
