Body, Mind, and Metaphor: An Experiential Workshop Exploring Dance/Movement Therapy in Clinical Practice - 6 CE credits
CE Credits:6
Saturday, May 20, 2017, 9:00 AM -4:30 PM (registration at 8:30)
Late arrivals or early departures will NOT receive CEs (15 min)

This full day experiential workshop will highlight some theoretical tenants of the profession of dance/movement therapy, and the use of movement as a metaphor and as the primary tool in building a therapeutic relationship.  Current research trends emphasizing the importance of the inclusion of nonverbal bodily-based interventions as well as the somatic experience of the practitioner will also be emphasized. Applications to various clinical populations will be addressed.

Participants of this workshop will:
1. Build awareness of how dance and movement facilitate expression, communication, spontaneity, and creativity in fostering growth, healing, and integrated functioning
2. Demonstrate understanding of how the elements of dance: rhythm, space, time, dynamics, and phrasing, evoke and support the expression of feelings, the uniqueness of the individual, and connection to others
3. Describe the unique ability of dance, as a combined aesthetic and physical activity, to elevate mood and lead to a sense of well-being
4. Describe how group rhythmic actions connect people to themselves and one another
5. Describe how shared symbolic movement universalizes experience
