Catharsis is the first Drama Therapy center in Lebanon and in the Arab Region. It is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 operating under the direction of Registered Drama Therapist, Zeina Daccache.
Our mission is to offer drama therapy services to the community in accordance with the highest ethical standards, providing a powerful tool to explore and deal effectively with the issues identified by a wide range of clients, including some of the most isolated and disadvantaged members of the society (substance abusers, residents in psychiatric hospitals, correctional facilities, etc.). In several cases, but not always, the Drama Therapy sessions can result in an artistic product that gives special populations a tool for self-advocacy, thereby communicating their message to the society and decision makers. Among Catharsis productions: the pioneering and award winning projects 12 Angry Lebanese and Scheherazade’s Diary presented by the inmates of Lebanese prisons.
Donors support is essential to sustain the drama therapy programs Catharsis implements with the most vulnerable and marginalized societies in Lebanon.
