These courses explore Dance/Movement Therapy for Children and Youth which is also extremely valuable knowledge for working with adults, and engages video content from The Moving Child Films I, II and III (http://www.themovingchild.com/store) as well as other resources.
You will learn about:
- Engaging children 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. We will have a guest lecturer with us for some classes in Part II: Dennis McCarthy.
- Expanding awareness and working with the movement and behavioural imprints of in utero, birth and early development and understand the relationship between movement and healthy attachment/bonding. This is very relevant for work with all ages of people.
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.
Location: ONLINE using Webinar and Zoom.
Note: Please ensure you have high speed internet, a good camera and microphone, and a good space to be moving in, where you will not be disturbed by too much background noise. You also need to ensure the confidentiality of the room you are in, to honour your fellow students’ need for confidentiality when sharing personal material. Some students are choosing to rent a movement studio for the time of their course hours or find another space at home with privacy. We also understand that everyone is managing Covid times to the best of their ability. Please discuss your unique situation with the instructor.
Recommended pre-requisite courses: It is highly recommended that students taking The Moving Child: Dance/Movement Therapy for Children and Youth, have already taken the Introduction to DMT courses of WCDMT part I and part II, or have taken other introductory training in DMT at another program or school. Please if you have questions about your eligibility, speak to the course administrator or instructor.
