The Moving Child II: DMT with Youth and Teens (1 credit)

This online course explores Dance/Movement Therapy with youth and teens from ages 7-16  and is also extremely valuable knowledge for working with adults. Here we engage with experiential learning, case studies and video content from a wide range of case studies as well as other resources. This course is open to therapists, DMTs in training, educators, and anyone working professionally with youth and teens.

You will learn about:

  • Engaging youth, teens and families using the DMT tools of attunement, mirroring, kinaesthetic empathy and expansion of movement repertoire, redirecting movement impulse, and building narrative and story through movement, as well as healing traumas, through creative forms and activities.
  • Expanding awareness of movement processes for application with youth and working with a number of themes related to this population; including group identity, body image, sexuality, spiritual curiosity, drug and alcohol addiction and cultural and sub-cultural influences.

(There are two parts to this course: we ask that you attend Part I before taking Part II as the courses are sequential in design.)

Part I (1 credit; 15hours): covers material for applications in utero through age 7.

Part II (1 credit: 15hours): covers material for applications for ages 7-16 years old.
