Summary 

The PCPE Project has its roots in a new model of dramatherapy developed by Encounter Theatre & Therapy over four years of clinical practice in day care and residential settings. PCPE is for Adults with moderate to profound and multiple Learning Disabilities.

PCPE affects the individual’s relationship to the wider culture they engage with, in particular: enablers; friends; home environment; family. The PCPE model provides a responsive focus and aesthetic for exploring diverse and accessible ways to enable our participants to make creative discoveries and to self-advocate.

During 2015 PCPE evolved from ‘pure’ dramatherapy practice into dramatherapy and live art projects. This allowed Encounter Theatre and Therapy to explore the edges of the project’s potential - from art applied as a psychotherapeutic intervention to art for cultural wellbeing and development.
