Abstract

This heuristic research study aims to unearth the experiences of discovering self-care through the spaces given in drama therapy. Heuristic research has the unique ability of exploring the researcher’s own experiences with the topic, while searching and promoting the possibility of new connections and meanings. The purpose of this study is to gather information on the researcher’s own journey of coming to better understand self-care while attending drama therapy sessions as well as studying as a drama therapy student. I (Stephanie) will share my own personal discoveries of how the heuristic research process is a unique method for an individual to share research in a creative realm. I will present my research using the six-stages of the heuristic process and illuminate the findings and the possibilities for future studies.
Key Words: Heuristic Research Method, Self-care, drama therapy
