    Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Women in Midlife: How are We Doing? A DMT Perspective.

    with Marybeth Weinstock, PhD, BC-DMT

    Registration closes August 5th

    Brief Description:

    In this webinar, we will define terms and review epidemiology of eating disorders for women in midlife.  We will explore the challenges of body image in aging women confronted by messages that are unavoidable, looking back on the literature to discuss how we are currently faring.  As aging dancers, we have many existential challenges to face which can add poignancy to our work.  We will explore the responsibility of DMT's to remain conscious of our personal attitudes and assess how we represent and reflect body/mind health in our work with our clients, patients, and students, and also with our colleagues across professions.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Participants will be able to name diagnostic categories of eating disorders
    • Participants will be more fluent in epidemiology of eating disorders in women in midlife
    • Participants will accrue skills in working with women and body image
    • Participants will attain skills in assessing their current relationship with body image

    Grant Writing for Everyone: What You Need to Get Started (If I can do it, you can do it!)    

    with Jenna D. Heise, MA, BC-DMT, NCC
    *******this webinar does not earn NBCC CEs but does earn ADTA CEs*******
    Registration closes August 26, 2014.

     

    Webinar Description

    Have you heard people talk about grants and grant writing and think "I wonder what it takes to learn to write grants?" I know that my eyes would glaze over when colleagues would talk about the long and arduous task of grant writing.  I categorized it up there with advanced math and quantitative research in my mind.  Important tasks for the field that I hope someone else will do, not my strong suit.  Well, then I got a job where we needed funds to expand our program beyond what the state could offer.  I had to learn on the go, trial under fire.  Some of us learn best that way, however, let me break it all down for you.  The government speak, the acronyms associated with grants, the general grant writing process and some fun tips I have picked up about managing grants and maintaining funding. Take an hour to familiarize yourself with these basics and then you won't have to wonder about how to write a grant, you will have a handy guide to help you get started.

     

    Learning Objectives

    • Participants will be able to identify at least one grant writing tip
    • Participants will be able to identify what SAMHSA is and how to find new grants that they fund
    • Participants will be able to list the process for applying for a grant, including what an RFA, RFI and RFP stand for.

    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
    Presenter Bio: Nancy Beardall, PhD, BC-DMT, LMHC, CMA is Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Expressive Therapies Division at Lesley University, Cambridge, MA. As a dance/movement therapist, consultant, Certified Movement Analyst, and educator, Dr. Beardall’s work has focused on the cognitive, social/emotional and relational development using dance, dance/movement therapy and the expressive arts in the public schools.

    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.
