    A Healing Pathway is a Creative Process:
    DMT with Child Survivors of Torture War and Violence  

    with Amber Elizabeth Lynn Gray, MPH, MA, BC-DMT, NCC, LPCC

    Tuesday, April 7, 2015, 7 PM EST
    Registration closes April 6, 2015.

    Description: The number of displaced people in the world has surged to more than 50 million, for the first time since World War II. The majority of those displaced are women and children. The inherent vulnerabilities of childhood are heightened for refugee and asylum seeking children who are at risk for both primary and secondary traumatic exposure. In this webinar we will explore the unique needs and issues facing children displaced by violence: Child refugees and children seeking asylum are at risk for primary trauma, when they have been subjected to war, violence and even torture; and as secondary survivors when family members are subjected to torture and human rights abuses. Recent SAMHSA funded initiatives have defined many evidenced based approaches for working with children; many of them are educational or cognitively and/or behaviorally focused. Dance Movement Therapy will be presented as a cross culturally adaptable treatment approach that has potential to become a best practice treatment, based on current researchers and theorists whose work will be highlighted, and who endorse more non-verbal, creative and integrated therapeutic approaches to childhood trauma.


    1. Participants will learn about the unique themes and issues informing mental health needs that face children displaced by war and human rights abuses;
    2. Participants will learn about a revised behavioral health conceptual paradigm for trauma-informed mental health approaches to working with child survivors of human rights abuses and war;
    3. Participants will learn a specific approach to using DMT in the treatment of child refugees and survivors of human rights abuse, through the sharing of a case examples.
