Advocacy Work

As the professional body for drama therapy, the DGfT is the main advocacy group for drama therapists in Germany, representing its members in multiple committees, dedicated to advance the professional field of drama therapy. The stated, overall goal is to define the field of drama- and the creative arts therapies, to advance drama therapy into new and untried settings and additionally create a legislative foundation for the field of the creative arts therapies.

In order to push these goals forward, the DGfT cooperates with the associations of other creative arts therapies in Germany.Together, they form the WFKT, which focuses its effort primarily on research in the creative arts therapies, and the BAG KT, a joined advocacy group for the creative arts therapies.
