Developing Resilience & Anxiety Management in Adolescents

Many adolescents struggle with worries, anxiety in social situations or depression and would benefit from therapy services, but do not have access to providers or are reluctant to pursue services due to stigma about therapy.

Through a collaboration between faculty in Case Western Reserve University’s theater and psychological sciences departments, we are offering Project DRAMA, a unique program that combines evidence-based strategies for anxiety and depressed mood with improvisation, the theatrical art of performance and storytelling without a script.

Project DRAMA stands for Developing Resilience & Anxiety Management in Adolescents. The program is for teens ages 14-17 years of age who struggle with worries, social anxiety or depression.
