Drama is natural way of playing, behaving and thinking of children. Cognitive therapies are less useful for children than drama. It is not easy to explain and teach small child to think and behave in an expected way without action and role playing. Drama exercises are also very useful for the classroom application because it concerns a group process and drama can be use for more purposes: learning knowledge, skills, creativity, attitudes and values. Experience of the partners of this consortium (who use drama as a method for learning and development) shows that drama can help children to deal with their shyness and social anxiety. The consortium consists of 5 partners from 5 European countries: England, Greece, Poland, Ireland and Spain.
