How can drama and story help caregivers access and express stories for hope and change? In supportive work with caregivers and healthcare providers drama and story work can help facilitate a deep form of personal self discovery while fostering empathy and understanding. Performing drama influenced activities can also help caregivers and other healthcare providers reach within and access their own stories reflecting on the past while drawing actively on the creative and expressive capabilities of the body.
