    Nonconforming Bodies: The Role of Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation in Dance/Movement Therapy  

    with Thania Acarón, dance movement therapy, performer and choreographer

    Wednesday, June 10, 2015, 12 PM EST
    Registration closes June 9, 2015.
    Continuing Education: 1 hour ADTA; 1 hour NBCC

     

    Description: This webinar aims to explore body ‘questions’ that emerge in DMT work with LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) clients in a community-based setting. Deeper understandings of sexuality and gender in a therapeutic context can be beneficial to any client population, helping both clients and therapists move towards de-pathologization and acceptance. The participants will be introduced to LGBTI terms, current research and case examples, which will illustrate important considerations in creating safe therapeutic spaces for nonconforming bodies. 

     

    OBJECTIVES:

    1. Become familiarized with current terminology pertaining to gender identity and sexual orientation
    2. Understand therapeutic issues LGBTI clients face, and particular benefits DMT can offer
    3. Broaden discussion on therapist competencies regarding gender and sexuality

    Coming Out in the Age of the Religious Freedom Act: Unique Challenges and Approaches in Therapy for the LGBT Population

    with Heidi Landgraf, MFA, MA, R-DMT, RSMT/E, PCCI, and Certified Halprin Practitioner


    Wednesday, June 17, 2015, 12 PM EST
    Registration closes June 16, 2015.
    Continuing Education: 1 hour ADTA; 1 hour NBCC


    Description: Coming out is not a one-time event, nor is it specific to the LGBT population. All people are in a continual process of growth and rebirth. As we move through this cycle, we hit blocks during the process. The use of the multi-modal arts in therapy can be an excellent way to move through them. In this webinar we will discuss this process in the broader sense, but will mostly focus on the LGBT population in specific. The challenges of living in a hetero-normative, straight-privileged world will be examined through the lens of recent happenings in politics and popular American culture. Challenges through time will also be addressed, to learn how an LGBT client has been shaped by culture on a generational level. Participants will learn about the unique challenges that the LGBT population faces during the coming out process.  Issues such as low self-esteem, substance abuse, self-harm, and suicide will be examined. Dance/movement therapy interventions, DBT methods, Vipassana techniques, the Halprin 5-Part Process and the multi-modal arts in therapy will be discussed as they pertain to working with this population.  


    OBJECTIVES:

    1. Participants will become aware of the challenges the LGBT population faces living in a hetero-normative world.
    2. Participants will learn about issues specific to the LGBT population during the coming out process.
    3. Participants will learn about how to use and apply interventions drawn from various fields and practices such as: Dance/Movement Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Vipassana meditation, the Halprin 5-Part Process and Expressive Arts Therapy.
