    Cultivating Engagement: Effective Communication Skills for DMT with People with Dementia

    with Donna Newman-Bluestein, M.Ed., BC-DMT, CMA, LMHC

    Tuesday, August 18, 2015, 12 PM EST
    Registration closes August 17, 2015.
    Continuing Education: 1 hour ADTA; 1 hour NBCC

    Brief description:

    What do dance/movement therapy with people with dementia and effective communication skills have to do with one another? Dance/movement therapists tend to have excellent communication skills. Yet a deeper understanding will help us hone those specific skills to be more effective in addressing our clinical concerns in DMT with people with dementia. At the same time, these skills will help us be more articulate in our advocacy, about both addressing the needs of people with dementia and dance/movement therapy.



    Donna Newman-Bluestein, M.Ed., BC-DMT, CMA, LMHC is a board certified dance/movement therapist, certified movement analyst, licensed mental health counselor, dancer, performer, educator, trainer and speaker. Donna's company, Dance for Connection, provides DMT services to older adults and people with dementia and training for caregivers. A senior lecturer at Lesley University, she has taught since 1992, is official spokesperson for the American Dance Therapy Association, and recipient of their 2013 Exceptional Service Award. Donna dances with Back Pocket Dancers, an intergenerational dance company that performs for elder venues and children in schools.


    Learning objectives:

    1. Articulate the 3 basic communication skills.
    2. Identify 3 strategies to maintain group member attention.
