- Alternative training students who plan to attend additional in-person training sessions with registered Drama Therapists, such as the NADTA (North American Drama Therapy Association) or other drama therapy conference as credit toward the Principles of Drama Therapy course requirement.
This class will include a concise overview of the field of drama therapy, including an introduction to each of the current drama therapy approaches, history of the profession, ethics and cultural response-ability. Students will also gain knowledge of how to structure a drama therapy session and address therapeutic considerations.

Optional Service for alternative training students: $100 for support in creating a plan to gain additional credit towards Principles of Drama Therapy (up to 2 semester credits) by attending conference workshops taught by RDTs. This includes BCT sign-off on training requirement if completed within 1 year. (By 12/5/2019) Conference workshops taught by RDTs are available at the annual conference of the North American Drama Therapy Association Conference and at the Expressive Therapies Summit.
Information about Alternative Training and the Principles of Drama Therapy Requirement: Alternative training is a Master's Level educational route toward the Registered Drama Therapist (RDT) Credential. Three semester credits of Principles of Drama Therapy are required. Fifteen in-session instructional hours equal one semester credit. Students attending the NADTA conference can count their attendance toward the requirement. A student who attends 30 in-session hours at the conference would potentially be eligible for 2 semester credits toward an alternative training course. Students must work with a BCT (Board Certified Trainer) on this plan in order to get credit.
