Abstract

This paper chronicles the author's self-revelatory performance process through Moustakas' (1990) six stage heuristic model. The intention of this research paper is to explore where the roles ofdrama therapist and global citizen intersect: the self-revelatory performance. This paper demonstrates the transformative power of the self-revelatory performance. Emunah (2004) explains that the drama therapy technique of self-revelatory performance is transformative for both the performer and audience. Theories of transformative learning and Yalom's (2005) therapeutic factors are used to explain these transformative benefits as they pertain to the audience. The author argues that it is the self-revelatory performance transformative benefits that facilitate the drama therapist's ability to act as a global citizen. This study holds implications for the intersections of therapy and social change.
