New! ADTA Continuing Education Webinar Program 

The Ethical Use of Digital Technology in DMT

Presenter: Paul Sevett, 


The benefits of dance/movement therapy as a psychotherapeutic intervention are well-established. The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA), founded in 1966, is a professional organization dedicated to the profession of dance/movement therapy. Dance/movement therapy (DMT) uses movement to "further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual."  Through movement, DMT can help individuals with a wide range of psychological disorders achieve greater self-expression. 


What is dance / movement therapy?

Autism Awareness Month
In observance of Autism Awareness Month, we are excited to share with 
you this sneak preview of the ADTA Talk on dance/movement therapy 
and autism. Dr. Christina Devereaux speaks about the unique capacity of dance/movement therapy to meet people with autism in many ways, channeling communication patterns into "dances of relationship."
