As dance/movement therapists, we believe that a person’s lived bodily experience is central to the therapeutic process, and that dancing is life-affirming. Relational bodily action is the primary agent of change. The DMT program presents both nonverbal and verbal approaches, enhanced by training in MFT. Students determine the methods that resonate with their professional identity as dance/movement therapists, and best serve a diverse clientele.
Our graduates work with individuals, couples, families, and groups in a variety of settings including: psychiatric, VA, medical, rehabilitation, pediatric hospitals; community mental health facilities; schools; residential treatment centers for children, adolescents, elders; and correctional facilities.
The DMT program holds an abiding commitment to social justice, multicultural inclusion, and anti-oppressive practice by working to transform relationships of power.
