Abstract

Dramatic Psychological Storytelling (DPS) presents a flexible seven-step model for insight and change. Anchored by Expressive Art and the action method, Psychotheatrics, DPS combines drama (expression through seven different Expressive Art types), with psychology (experiences of the individual and the collective), and storytelling (the content, the expression of an experience or situation). DPS creates a visual phenomenological, intersubjective framework as it depicts challenges, strategies and outcomes, whilst developing a dynamic storybook.
