    A Dance/Movement Therapist in Every School: Implications for Institutionalizing DMT Programs 

    with Nancy Beardall, PhD, BC-DMT, LMHC, CMA

    Registration deadline: September 8, 2014

    Webinar Summary


    This webinar explores the role of dance, dance therapy and the expressive arts in the psychoeducational development of students in grades K-12. A model for dance/movement therapy in the elementary school will be shared as well as highlighting three secondary school programs: Creative Dance, Creating a Peaceable School and Mentors in Violence Prevention. The primary program addresses special populations utilizing both individual and group therapy models. The secondary programs address adolescent challenges such as self-esteem, empowerment, bullying prevention, promoting gender respect and building community. Examples from these programs will be explored to illustrate how dance, dance therapy and the arts can be used to support secondary school students’ social, emotional and relational growth as they experience an embodied learning and knowing leading to a more mindful and integrated understanding of themselves and others. The theoretical models that serve as the foundation for this work will be discussed along with the results of the school-based research studies. How to bring the educators and community together in establishing and institutionalizing this model will also be shared.


    Learning Objectives:
    1. Understanding the skills that DMTs contribute to the social, emotional and relational development of students K-12
    2. Explore the interface between the Neuroscience of Mindfulness, Dance/Movement Therapy and Education
    3. Discuss the process of institutionalizing health and wellness programs that utilize dance, dance/movement therapy and the arts

    Trends in Autism Research & Intervention: Where does DMT fit in this picture?   

    with Christina Devereaux, PhD, LCAT, LMHC, BC-DMT

    October 24, 2014, 11 am EST
    Registration closes October 23, 2014.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    Participants will:

    • Gain an understanding of some of the current trends in ASD research
    • Build an awareness and understanding of the new DSM-5 diagnosis and criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder and identify changes since DSM-IV-TR
    • Identify specific talking points of how DMT addresses specific diagnostic criteria as an intervention for people with ASD. 

    Description:

    This webinar will provide a brief overview of some of the latest research and interventions for autism spectrum disorders and how dance/movement therapy (DMT) fits within these current trends.  Along with this discussion will include information about the revised criteria for those with autism-related disorders that are now published in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Men­tal Disorders (DSM-5) and distinguish the differences from the DSM-IV diagnosis that included four separate disorders. Finally, the webinar will provide participants with specific talking points of how DMT addresses specific diagnostic criteria as an intervention for people with ASD.  It is a hope that this webinar may provide a starting point to invite further discussion for more ASD/DMT research to transpire.
