    Broken Body, Broken World:
    DMT and the Restorative Process for Refugees and Survivors; Part 1-Adults  

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

    Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 7 PM EST
    Registration closes January 27, 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. In this webinar we will explore the unique needs and issues facing those displaced by violence: refugees and survivors of torture (many of whom are seeking asylum) arriving to the United States, and those still living overseas in refugee and IDP camps. Dance Movement Therapy will be presented as a cross culturally adaptable treatment approach that facilitates a restorative process for those who have lost everything in their flight from persecution. This webinair will touch on the potential for DMT to become a best practice treatment, based on current research on trauma and the body, and the increasing demand for global mental health. Examples of actual DMT work with this community will be shared, and the information will be adaptable and relevant to those working with survivors of other forms of interpersonal, violent and relational trauma, especially across cultures.

    Objectives:

    1. Participants will learn about the unique themes and issues informing the mental health needs that face people displaced by war and human rights abuses.
    2. Participants will learn about a body and DMT-based conceptual paradigm for mental health treatment with survivors of human rights abuses.
    3. Participants will learn a specific approach to using DMT in the treatment of adult refugees and survivors of human rights abuse.

    United by Our Differences: DMT and the Dance of Inclusion in a Multicultural and Diverse World  

    with Angela Tatum Fairfax, PhD, LPC, BC-DMT, NCC

    Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 7:30 PM EST
    Registration closes February 3, 2015


    Description:

    It is virtually impossible to complete an application without divulging personal identity factors such as age, race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, etc. Western society in particular is constructed of categorization which emphasizes separateness and difference. However, the zeitgeist in the helping professions has shifted to more inclusive models of multiculturalism and diversity to strive for understanding and acceptance. This has proven to be a delicate dance for many therapists including DMTs to balance cultural competence, awareness and sensitivity when working with clients from different backgrounds and worldviews. To address this important shift the ADTA endorsed the formation of the Multicultural and Diversity Committee (MDC) in 2008 to meet the needs of a new diverse generation of DMTs. In 2009, Affinity Groups began forming in affiliation with the MDC to serve particular constituencies and to give voice to non-dominant groups within the DMT community. We will explore the four layers of diversity and nine complex cultural factors and influences as a means to work through our personal differences to create a community of inclusiveness in our DMT practice.

    OBJECTIVES

    1. Participants will gain understanding of the four layers of diversity and nine complex cultural factors and influences in relation to DMT theory and practice.
    2. Participants will be able to identify personal attitudes and behaviors toward valuing diversity.
    3. Participants will gain foundational knowledge of the current need for the Multicultural and Diversity Committee and Affinity Groups within the ADTA structure.

    Black History and the "Black Lives Matter" Movement -- Implications for DMT Practice in a Supposed "Post-Racial" Society  

    with Lysa Monique Jenkins-Hayden, BBA, MA, CH, LPC

    Wednesday, February 11, 2015, 7:30 PM EST
    Registration closes February 10, 2015.


    Description:

    For several historical periods, movement behavior was dictated and prescribed in strict dominance and submission reciprocals, known as racial etiquettes. Historically, state Jim Crow laws or social customs governed the gestures and postures of Black persons, who were to convey docile compliance, and White persons were to display superiority.  While many think of racism as an issue of the past, scholarly literature states that “modern racism” does indeed have a form, known as racial microagressions. Currently the “Black Lives Matter” Movement has implored all to reconsider whether we truly live in the “post-racial” society espoused by many after the election of President Obama.  Evaluations, values, beliefs, and attitudes about one’s self and others contribute to the development of body image and expressions of racism. How racism is imbedded into our cultural idealization and denigrations and impact the therapeutic use of movement will be explored.

    Objectives:

    1. Participants will gain foundational understandings about the definitions, theory, and clinical considerations about race, ethnicity, and racism.
    2. Participants will gain insights about how the historical context contributes to modern day racism, known as microagressions.
    3. Participants will gain foundational understanding of historical psychological theories of race and how they potentially inform current day client/clinician interaction
