Body, Nature and Soul: Exploring our Ecological Connections Through Dance Movement Psychotherapy

A Dance Movement Psychotherapy Summer Course at Goldsmiths – 29th August to 1st September 2014

 

This summer course will be facilitated by experienced Dance Movement Psychotherapists and will offer the opportunity to engage with individual and environmental concerns through movement and dance. The body hosts our life experience and is the place of our creative potential. Through an engagement with movement and dance, we can discover the deeper meanings of individual and shared concerns and begin to evolve new stories to shape and define our relationships with each other and with the wider ecology.
The course offers a chance to experience the practice of Dance Movement Psychotherapy as an effective and powerful medium for change. Sessions will include:
§ finding connections through the body
§ enabling the body to speak
§ exploring our earth stories through the creative process
§ attuning to each other and the environment through movement
§ creating a shared community space through movement and dance
Dates: Friday, 29th August – Monday, 1st September 2014 inclusive
Venue: HRB 300 Goldsmiths, University of London
Tutors: Marina Benini, Dawn Batcup, Zita Cox and Fiona Hoo

Advanced Practice developments at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh: deepening learning & clinical skills, developing leadership & research in innovative practice for Arts Therapists

Queen Margaret University, Division of Occupational Therapy and Arts Therapies is supporting the development of:

PgCert, PgDip and MSc in Advanced Practice for registered  Arts Therapists

Part-time and full-time routes available

The aim of this new programme is to support practicing Arts Therapists to meet the NHS objectives of developing Advanced Practitioners in the workplace who meet Level 7 of the Career Framework for Health (Skills for Health 2006) where their professionalism is underpinned by the four pillars of practice: Clinical Practice, Facilitating Learning, Leadership and Research.

The programme will offer Continuous Professional Development credit bearing learning where the student can complete their studies at three exit points. It is designed to attract registered Arts Therapists (Art, Dance, Drama and Music), and some modules may be attractive to practitioners from other fields eg Nursing, Occupational Therapy etc.

In this period of professional uncertainty the programme will encourage originality of thinking, initiate innovative health and social care projects, thus developing confident practitioners who will be agents of change. Arts therapists are increasingly required to seek new methods of application of their skills, adapting them to education, health and community settings. This programme will support students to increase their knowledge and skills relevant to the current challenging employment culture. Elements of the learning experience will include:

  • Deepening the understanding and skills of movement awareness and the nonverbal dialogue to further enhance the client/therapist relationship
  • Design, implementation and evaluation of a clinical  intervention
  • Exploration of key areas to deepen and advanced therapeutic skills
  • Introduce new approaches to Arts based supervision and reflective practice
  • Further application of research skills in clinical practice

Expected start date: January 2015

Acting Programme leader: Susan Scarth MCAT RDMP CMA

Visiting lecturers will be drawn from senior practitioners of Art Psychotherapy, Dramatherapy, Dance Movement Psychotherapy and Music Therapy
