Dance/Movement Therapy for The Adult Journey (online course Fall 2023)


This is a unique online 30 hour (2 credit, ADTA Alt Route Approved course) that supports students of Dance Therapy or registered Clinicians (Counsellors, Psychologists, Social Workers, Psychotherapists or others working in the mental health field) with the knowledge, understanding and techniques/methods to integrate more embodiment and movement into their practices of psychotherapy. This is evidence based, somatic, culturally informed work, that supports clients to have choice as per trauma-informed practice protocols. The benefits of DMT are manifold and movement is essential in human expression and development and healing.

It is ideal if students have some understanding of somatics and dance therapy prior to taking this course, but it is not necessarily required depending on the practitioners background. We are happy to share the course Syllabus with you upon request (copyright The Movement Arc).
