To reserve a spot or with questions, please email dvt.nyc@gmail.com

Our ongoing practitioner training is a 1- or 3-year program that (with additional DvT play outside of the training program) allows for trainees to meet the class requirements for either DvT Level 1 certification (1 year) or for full graduation as a DvT Practitioner (3 years).

Weekends consist of community-building work, embodied play and instruction in the methods of group, individual, short-form, and trauma-focused Developmental Transformations drama therapy. Trainees explore both the core texts and theories that develop DvT as well as allied practices and theories that contributed to its development and identity.


One semester + additional written work meets the criteria for a 3-credit drama therapy elective for Alternate Route RDT Drama Therapy Training. Training hours (with approval of BCT) can contribute to other coursework for that program as well.  Some or all of the training hours may contribute to LCAT Continuing Education training.

Core texts related to the development and practice of Developmental Transformations are located here
