Internationally, the DGfT is integrated into the European Federation of Dramatherapy (EFD) as well as the World Alliance of Dramatherapy. Within Germany, the DGfT cooperates in close partnership with the professional bodies of the other creative arts therapies (music, art, dance/movement) to form the BAG KT as well as the WFKT.
Through the Institut für Theatertherapie and in cooperation with colleges in Berlin, Freiburg and Nürtingen, the DGfT offers three year training courses as well as professional development in Dramatherapy. Additionally, the Nürtingen Geislingen University offers a four-year undergraduate program in dramatherapy.
