Pioneers in Dance Movement Psychotherapy: different DMP models

The intensive workshop also focuses on how DMP is applied to practice in various settings. You will have an opportunity to hear about a number of specialist areas and how DMP adapts to fit the context whilst staying fundamentally on model with its guiding principles.
Preetha Ramasubramanian: Preetha did her MA in Dance Movement Psychotherapy and graduated with a distinction from Goldsmiths College, University of London. She is a member of Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy, United Kingdom and American Dance Therapy Association.
Preetha started her professional career as a special educator in India and went on to head the creative movement department at vidyasagar. To gain international exposure she moved to the UK and worked as a special educator. During this, she witnessed how movement and dance helped people think and talk about their feelings. As a professional dance teacher in modern dance, she witnessed an overall change in people’s wellbeing through dance. This inspired her to explore how movement can be used as an expressive tool and led her to higher studies in Dance Movement Psychotherapy and a career in the psychotherapy domain. As a dance movement psychotherapist she gained broad exposure in the UK working in different settings such as forensic psychiatric unit, special and mainstream schools.
