Register Now for DMT In Healthcare
Coming This September!

DMT In Healthcare: Prevention, Treatment and Aftercare
is a theory and practice course covering the role of dance/movement therapy in the prevention and treatment of illness, and in the maintenance of health and well being. This course focuses on dance/movement therapy contributions to health and well being in response to the somatic, emotional and cognitive consequences of stress and trauma.

Dance/movement therapy in a medical context and as an adjunctive treatment for illness will be addressed as will the role of dance/movement therapy in coming to terms with treatment outcomes, creating new choices, and finding new meaning. Self regulation, self expression, and self in relationship are all considered as fundamental to health and well being.  The specific attention throughout to body awareness, creativity, and attunement, will amplify aspects of dance/movement therapy theory and practice, as well as provide a foundation for a somatically oriented psychotherapy practice.

This is one of our most popular classes and is taught by CMER faculty member Shira Musicant. The course runs for 3 days, from
Friday, Sept. 12th thru Sunday, Sept. 14th and takes place at the Strawberry Creek Design Studio in Berkely, California. The course satisfies 25 hours of DMT Theory & Practice training and also meets the qualifications for 25 hours of continuing education credit for MFTs and/or LCSWs in California.
