This webinar series will offer insight and inspiration for ways in which integrating dance/movement therapy (DMT) and other modalities can enhance treatment. Bringing other approaches into DMT expands options for intervention and provides additional frameworks to focus the work. Throughout the series, dance/movement therapists will learn more about options that may strengthen their practice and other mental health professionals will be introduced to the benefits of using an embodied and creative approach with a variety of interventions. Join us in exploring the use of DMT with dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and trauma informed CBT, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), sensorimotor psychotherapy (SP), internal family systems (IFS), motivational interviewing (MI), yoga therapy.
