The experimental intervention was an intensive theatre skills training program. The group of adolescent participants recovering from ABI met daily for four hours over a period of 4 weeks.

Theatre training included voice work, breathing, movement, physical warm-up, character development, script analysis, writing skills, three-dimensional awareness, group dynamics, story development, mask work and clowning among others.
