Abstract

This research paper aims to summarize an investigation that the researcher carried out by exploring the question: How can Intergenerational Trauma experienced by Aboriginal Youth be addressed within the context of Drama Therapy? The paper includes a literature review on the fundamental elements of Drama Therapy as a modality, trauma experienced as an intergenerational phenomenon, and an existing snapshot of Aboriginal youth in Canada from a historical-bibliographical lens. A discussion of intersections between the triangulation of population (Aboriginal Youth), issue (Intergenerational Trauma), and potential intervention (Drama Therapy) is then presented. This is followed by recommendations for moving forward with the momentum for action in this proposed scenario. The goal of this research seeks to yield an understanding of the need for such an intervention to exist and to provide a basis of rationale for the motivation of potential stakeholders to pursue such interest. Further, the researcher strives toward an illumination of the significance of contribution from the Creative Arts Therapies in the conversation and incentive for change concerning the findings from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in this vein.
