Dance/movement therapy (DMT) focuses on movement behavior as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. Every dance/movement therapy session is unique and is reflective of the needs of the clients in the moment and the specific therapeutic goals and treatment objectives. Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviors are all considered for group and individual treatment.
DMT is practiced in mental health, rehabilitation, medical, educational and forensic settings, and in nursing homes, day care centers, disease prevention, health promotion programs and in private practice. These videos contain footage of dance/movement therapy facilitated by credentialed clinicians and represent only a small portion of what dance/movement therapy may “look” like.
Recorded before live audiences in New York City (2013) and San Diego, California (2015) these brief talks cover a wide range of topics pertaining to dance/movement therapy. Speakers share their unique clinical expertise as dance/movement therapists on the following topics: Autism, Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, Mental Illness, Substance Abuse, Trauma, Bullying, Pediatric Oncology, Palliative Care, Parenting and more.
Dance/movement therapists are graduate trained mental health clinicians and can be recognized by one of two credentials: R-DMT (Registered) or BC-DMT (Board Certified).
