DE-CRUIT, developed by Stephan Wolfert, a US Army veteran, is the process of interweaving personal writings with veteran-related Shakespeare texts, applying stage skills for life skills, and completing the communalization of trauma within the veteran community.
Shakespeare wrote at a time when England was involved in many conflicts. Therefore his plays feature characters who speak very clearly about trauma. Throughout the course, veterans select Shakespearian monologues that fit their experiences and are coached through line-by-line analysis
The program is scientifically evaluated under the guidance of Dr. Alisha Ali of the New York University’s Department of Applied Psychology, with the help of EEGs, Heart Coherence, and psychological surveys.
This program is aligned with the Tarrant County Veteran’s Treatment Court Diversion Program.
