Village Voice's Description
David Read Johnson at the Institute for the Arts in Psychotherapy is the man. He invented something called Developmental Transformations, a kind of therapy that uses drama and improvisation to work out your kinks. Instead of sitting around rehashing your top 20 personal problems, you and the therapist get on your feet. You might end up sitting down, lying down, playing hide-and-seek, talking to the wall, whatever. Clients get to act out all the things that bother them, plus their hopes, dreams, etc. You get to be more dramatic about your problems instead of less, and it really feels good. The first sessionaa 45-minute chat about what you want from the experienceais free.
