Workshops in July 2013
b) Music Therapy (8 to 12 July 2013)
Dance Movement Psychotherapy
Date:13 to 17 July 2013
This course aims to provide you with the basic concepts of theory and practice in Dance Movement Psychotherapy. As the body remembers its story, with an engagement with movement it helps people get in touch with themselves in a more deeper way and can lead to new discoveries about themselves.
Body and movement is the medium of creative process during the therapy, therefore the therapist helps the clients get in touch with their inner world in an authentic way. The therapist does not need a background in dance to facilitate this process. Psychodynamic principles will be the main medium of theoretical approach that will be used to connect the cathartic process to cognitive understanding.
The main areas of focus are:
- Working with different cliental groups using movement as a medium of communication
- Exploring the concepts of attunement and empathy in communication
- Working with ones own movement and trying to connect it with their life experiences
- Using other tools to help explore the movement process
You will be awarded a certificate of completion at the end of the course. The classes will be 9 AM to 3 PM, Between 3 PM to 4 PM you will have to work on a class assignment everyday.
