- January 15-17, 2021, 3-day Intensive, Friday – Sunday
Either on the AUNE campus in Keene, NH or virtually if COVID restrictions are still in place.
Registration for the January Intensive here.
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 past and present 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 week or weekend of personal and professional self-discovery.
A discount of $95 off of the registration fee is available for current undergraduate students.
The 3-day Intensive, January 15 – 17, 2021 will be offered for 15 clock hours of National Board of Certified Counselors contact. See the NBCC section below for details.
