- January 14-16, 2022, 3-day Intensive, Friday – Sunday
This workshop is intended for those wishing to explore the field of dance/movement therapy as a possible career and for those furthering their professional development. Participants will be introduced to a variety of approaches used in dance/movement therapy. We emphasize the organic and evolving nature of DMT, in which all draw from a variety of sources, and no dance/movement therapist is the same as any other. The presenters are faculty members of the Master’s Program in Dance/Movement Therapy: Couple and Family Therapy at Antioch University New England. Each faculty will introduce one or two founder(s) into her content for the day in ways that embody the principles of that founder. We emphasize the multicultural roots of our profession throughout the curriculum. Please join us for a weekend of personal and professional self-discovery.
A discount of $95 off of the registration fee is available for current undergraduate students.
3-Day Intensive Schedule
Participants will engage in a total of 15 hours of experiential earning over three days. Sessions will be taught by rotating faculty from the Master’s Program in Dance/Movement Therapy: Couple and Family Therapy at Antioch University New England. Each faculty will bring who they are as dance/movement therapists (social locations, dance and movement styles, training, etc.) and share their expertise (clinical/research focus) and passion for the work from a variety of perspectives.
