The Austrian Association of Drama and Theatre Therapy
The ÖGDTT was founded in 2019 by Birgit Fritz and Susanna Stich-Bender as a non-profit association with the aim of publicising and developing drama and theatre therapy working methods in Austria. It also aims to stimulate dialogical processes with other artistic therapies and to link scientific approaches with practice. A further intention of the ÖGDTT is to develop ethical guidelines and standards for the work in Austria and to
offer training and continuing education programmes. The working group "Dramatherapy in Austria" will support this, providing a platform for exchange of experience and information. Since 2021 the ÖGDTT has also been a member of the EFD
(European Federation of Dramatherapy).
