How can drama support a child’s Emotional Wellbeing?

Are you concerned about how the pandemic has affected your child’s emotional wellbeing?

You’re not alone! As revealed in this study by YoungMinds , many parents are worried about the impact Covid restrictions have on their children.

During this disruptive time, kids have missed out on school, had their hobbies and activities reduced, seen their friends less, spent more time online and ultimately have had to live in a time when the whole world has been turned on its head.

Whilst parents are doing all they can to support their children through “the current situation”, they’re only human and (on a day to day level) there’s only so many times anyone can hear “I’m bored” with a level of sympathy!

At Dramatis, we run courses and classes that not only keep children entertained but also help support their emotional wellbeing.  We’ve witnessed first-hand the life skills drama helps develop in our pupils. From confidence, communication and problems solving to self-expression, emotional regulation and empathy; drama has been shown to boost social, emotional and cognitive outcomes.

These outcomes are summed up best by the below infographic created by WeTheParents that lists 21 benefits (and the associated research) that drama can have on children.
