What Will You Learn?

Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) or Dance Therapy as it is also known, is the use of bodily movements as a means of expression. It can be used to treat developmental and social issues in individuals, allowing people to also tap into their creative potential.

Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) can either be used as a primary treatment, or in conjunction with any other on-going treatments, depending on the needs of the clients. In the UK, it is considered a psycho-therapeutic treatment because of its proven ability to help support emotional, intellectual and motor functions by body movements. DMP is a form of expressive therapy where the individual is able to express their inner emotions and feelings through dancing. It not only helps the body refresh itself by expressing one’s emotions but also helps by physically de-stressing the body.

The Dance Movement Psychotherapy Course will help you build an in-depth understanding of the correlation between the dance steps and their impact on the body. You will learn about the various styles of DMP, so that you may find the style that is best-suited to you and those that you may work with.

Dance Movement Psychotherapy can help clients with particular problems and to aid them in overcoming them. Therapists in this area are asking their clients to use movement in their sessions, there are risks attached that they need to be mindful of, which are outlined in the course.

This course explains various movements and dance types and how they can help clients to express certain things. The course also discusses particular conditions and states of mind, and explains what and how various techniques can help with these.

Dance Movement Psychotherapy Course talks students through several important areas that you need to know about if you are to see clients professionally. This includes understanding not only the applications of this form of therapy but also its limitations, the ethical guidelines, responsibilities and duties you need to be aware of, confidentiality issues, and managing your relationships with, and expectations of, your clients.

Outlining how students would start their own Dance Movement Psychotherapy practice after undergoing further training. We also provide you with the next steps to furthering your career in this discipline.
