Amanda Rothman

I am a drama therapist from New York City who recently spent 9 months in Sri Lanka on a Fulbright Research Scholarship to develop drama therapy workshops for care providers. I am currently seeing individuals in a virtual creative arts therapy group practice. I have 12 years of experience studying and performing improvised theatre. I serve as adjunct faculty for New York University’s Stern School of Business where I teach “Improvisation for Ethical Leadership” to MBA students. Prior to relocating to Sri Lanka, I provided therapeutic services for the inpatient psychiatric department of a major New York City hospital. I am the co-founder and co-facilitator of the H.E.R.O. Unmasking Workshop for frontline healthcare workers. I have presented locally, nationally, and internationally on my work using drama therapy and improvised play to support healthcare workers. My research was recently published in the peer-reviewed journal The Drama Therapy Review. When not working, you can find me bird-watching or riding my bike.
