The course presents the rationale, main principles, methods of intervention and the integration of dance/movement therapy with other mind/body approaches. Students learn the applications and effects of dance/movement therapy on diverse populations, psychological conditions, trauma, and personal growth. It is a participatory course integrating movement experiences, lectures, discussions and reading. The course is open to all. Experience in dance is not required.
