CO-ACTIVE THERAPEUTIC THEATER

Currently, there are no manualized models of therapeutic theater (Snow 2000) which make examining its replicability and efficacy difficult. To answer this issue, Wood & Mowers have created a manualized approach called The Co-Active Therapeutic Theater (CoATT) Model, which has been used as a successful intervention for individuals post-intensive treatment who are working toward independent recovery. The CoATT Model is comprised of seven "movements" that support individuals in strengthening their form of recovery, including a culminating public performance.
