Currently, education in dramatherapy in Germany is offered either as an advanced training course, facilitated by the Institut für Theatertherapie (ITT), or as an undergraduate degree at the Nürtingen-Geislingen University. Minimal education requirements to receive credentialing by the DGfT include:
- Education (in Dramatherapy) of three years or more, including 1100 teaching units or more.
Applicants graduating from a foreign or alternative training program are being evaluated by the same standards of registration set forth by the DGfT, to ensure an equivalence in substance, form and duration of education.
