#NADTA2021 is all about finding ways to “connect, celebrate, and co-create”.  The conference is focusing on these 3 overarching themes:

The State of the Art & the Profession: This will include introductions to current approaches and practices - how are drama therapists in our community doing their work today?

The Business of the Association: This will focus on the current events and updates from the NADTA, and will include our meetings and committee chair forums and presentations.

Future Directions: This will focus on the new and emerging work in our field such as fresh perspectives and expansions of previous modalities, new research, and new approaches and practices.

Another vital theme that is woven through all of the above is awareness and dedication to cultural humility, equity, and diversity (CHED).  We will be accepting proposals this year from presenters for poster sessions and performances that demonstrate meaningful integration of cultural humility, equity, and diversity into your work.
