Using Drama as an Agent of Change to Learner Behaviour

The use of drama as an agent for change has been seen to be effective in supporting learners with emotional and behavioural difficulties. Behaviours are often an attempt to establish or modify a relationship. Students therefore often create problems for themselves and others through inappropriate behaviours intended to amuse, attract attention, or that are the result of an inability to self-regulate. Drama can help improve these students’ ability to relate to people, empower them to solve problems and allow them to see alternative outcomes.

  • The use of forum theatre to identify alternative behaviours
  • Drama games to highlight how we respond to situations
  • Role play to help social development and positive behaviours
