Touchstone Theatre Partnership Provides Therapeutic Opportunities for Students

This year's cohort featured students enrolled in the Partial Hospitalization programs at Easton High School and Liberty High School, Bethlehem Area SD. Their final performance occurred on February 14th on stage at Touchstone Theatre in southside Bethlehem.
The innovative program, Building Bridges, uses theatrical exercises and games to help students explore their creative side through a series of group activity sessions and builds towards a final performance. Building Bridges has reached hundreds of students over the years and provides a safe environment for students to learn more effective verbal and non-verbal communication skills, increased self-control, improved critical thinking skills, enriched problem solving and decision-making skills, increased self-esteem and a stronger sense of community.
