Title of DMP Training
MA Dance Movement Psychotherapy
Length of Training
2 years full time, 4 years (part-time)
Aims and Objectives
This Masters programme combines dance movement practice with psychology, psychotherapy and research methodology and it is based on integrative (i.e.Psychodynamic and Humanistic approaches) psychotherapy theories. The programme offers an opportunity to integrate emotional, cognitive, physical, social and spiritual aspects of one's self and aims to maintain the balance between the bodily, experiential and self-development aspects of training - and learning the necessary psychotherapy techniques and skills. We also pay careful attention to helping the students get the professional and clinical outlook that is absolutely necessary for employment - and the imaginative and creative aspects of training in this approach to psychotherapy. One distinguishing feature of the programme is the attention paid to diversity issues, essential for therapy work in a multicultural society in a period of rapid change. We explore diversity in the sense of ethnic, sexual, socioeconomic, cognitive, physical, and spiritual/religious diversity.
Any Other Trainings Offered
Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP) and short courses planned for CPD
