    Kestenberg Movement Profile Trainings 2014

    Instructor: Suzanne Hastie, MA, BC-DMT, NCC, LPC, KMP Analyst


    The Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP) is a systematic and in-depth movement assessment tool based entirely on the nonverbal. The KMP was developed by Dr. Judith Kestenberg and the Sands Point   Movement Study Group; it offers dance/movement therapists, clinicians, educators, childcare providers, parents & those interested in nonverbal behavior a refined language as well as a psychological interpretation for what is seen in the body. The KMP is especially informative in the areas of assessment, treatment planning, and intervention. The KMP offers clarity & vision in clinical & educational settings as well as childcare facilities and for parents.


    Courses:

    (these courses have been approved by the American Dance Therapy Association as meeting requirements for the Alternate Route R-DMT credential. And, for practicing dance/movement therapists or childcare providers in Pennsylvania, 30 CE’s per course are available)

     

    Introduction to the Kestenberg Movement Profile (2 credits/30 hours)

    August 20-23, 2014 (fee due July 20)

    Fee: $775

    In this 30 hour introductory course, participants will learn the basic layout of the KMP, the movement patterns contained within it, and the developmental and psychological significance of the patterns. Through experiential activities, discussion, and observational practice, students will come to understand the depth, wholeness, and vision the KMP has to offer therapists and educators in their work. Clinical applications will be integrated into the course.


    Constructing Kestenberg Movement Profiles I: Tension Flow Rhythms, Bipolar Shape Flow & Unipolar Shape Flow (2 credits/30 hours)

    September 8-11, 2014 (fee due August 8)

    Fee: $825

    In this 30 hour course, students and clinicians will focus in-depth on tension flow rhythms (developmental issues & personality), bipolar shape flow (comfort with self/environment), and unipolar shape flow (attraction/repulsion to stimuli in the environment and in relationships). Movement observation, tension flow writing, labeling, notation and diagram construction will be taught and practiced. Clinical understanding of these patterns will be deepened and further applications to clinical work will be explored. Construction of the TFR, BS, and US diagrams of the profile as well as analysis of the findings will be required (for alternate route students and those pursuing KMP certification).


    Constructing Kestenberg Movement Profiles II:  Tension Flow Attributes, Pre-efforts, Efforts, Shaping in Directions, and Shaping in Planes (2 credits/30 hours)

    In this 30 hour course, students and clinicians will focus on tension flow attributes (affect), pre-efforts (defenses and learning style), efforts (coping style and ego strength), shaping in directions (structure for defenses, boundaries, and learning), and shaping in planes (structure for complex relationships). Movement observation, labeling, notation, and diagram construction will be taught and practiced. Clinical understanding of these patterns will be deepened and further applications to clinical work will be explored. Construction of the TFA, PE, E, SD, and SP diagrams of the profile as well as an analysis of the findings will be required (for alternate route students and those pursuing KMP certification).

    Available upon request and tailored to your interest and needs. Supervision/consultation may be arranged in person or via phone or skype.

If paying via PayPal, send an email to suzannehastie@aol.com with your mailing address.  An additional fee of $1 will be added to international Paypal purchases due to PayPal’s currency exchange fees.

     

    To register for courses, arrange for supervision/consultation, or to purchase a KMP Color Wheel poster, contact Suzanne Hastie at suzannehastie@aol.com or (610) 417-0831.

These successes need to be shared with other educators who are seeking information to teach students with disabilities, whether a single student or a whole class.

    ·      The peer buddy approach to including students with disabilities in the dance class.

    ·      Dance assessment for students with disabilities: Examples of implementation.

    ·      Community dance programs for students (secondary or elementary school level).

    ·      Teaching dance to students with developmental disabilities or a focus on a specific disability such as Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Limb Loss, Visual Impairment, Hearing Loss, Diabetes 1, ADHD or Spina Bifida, among others.

    ·      Dance performance for students with disabilities: The stage is for everyone.

    ·      Focus on a specific dance form for students with disabilities such as cultural dance, ballet, modern, jazz, creative, contact improvisation or social.

    ·      An annotated list of resources for teaching dance for students with disabilities, books, articles, videos, among others.

    ·      Teaching dance to students with severe disabilities.

    ·      Using technology or assistive devices in teaching dance to students with disabilities.

    ·      Writing a dance Individual Education Program (IEP).

    Body As Compass: Dreams & the Soul

    October 11, 2014

    9:30am-5:00pm

    Green Gulch Zen Center, Mill Valley, California


    Dreams carry treasures that enhance the meaning and depth of our life’s journey.  Illuminating our inner landscape, they help us come to know disowned parts of ourselves, point to what we value, and provide guidance on our life path.  Authentic Movement and BodySoul work allow access to these rich inner resources on a cellular level, reawakening our natural rhythms, instinctual wisdom, and the songs of the soul.


    In this day-long retreat we will nurture the body through expressive movement and connect with our dreams, learning how to work with them on an embodied level and  through arts practices.  This process invites creativity and fosters renewal and discovery.  Nestled in a beautiful valley with lush gardens along the California coast, Green Gulch Zen Center offers a quiet sanctuary for personal explorations.  No previous experience is necessary.  (6 CEUs for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs, DMTs & BC-DMTs)


    Tuition: $175, including materials.


    Registration Information: If you are interested in applying for this workshop, apply online or download the application and return by September 11th to Tina@AuthenticMovement-BodySoul.com. Please write ‘Body As Compass’ in the subject line. Enrollment is limited, early registration is advised.

    This is an invitation to those of you who provide dance to people with dementia to join a network.

    I envision this network as a resource for keeping each other up-to-date on the latest happenings, resources, articles, links and events related to dance and dementia within the U.S. that any of us find most useful. It is my hope that we will use this network to inspire one another, thus improving the quality of life for people living with a dementia. This is a small network at present.

    I would like to better understand the state of the art of dancing with people with dementia in the U.S., whether done by dance/movement therapists, dance educators, or dancers. I would like to know how many strong we are and what we are actually doing. Again, my hope is that as we begin to share our resources, that we can also share our dreams for better advocacy and our dreams for greater support, i.e. through workshops, training, conferences and research opportunities.

    Since I began to work with older adults with neurological impairments in the early 1980's, I have come to believe that ALL older adults and especially those with dementia in care facilities, are best served by being offered the opportunity to dance and/or move expressively on a regular basis, preferably daily. I also believe that best practice for people with advanced dementia who can no longer use verbal language would involve at least 1 person on care staff who comes from an embodied perspective.

    My model for this network comes from Dr. Richard Coaten who has both a UK and international networks. Here is his contact info: Dr Richard Coaten <richardcoaten@hotmail.co.uk> .

    What I need to know from you at this moment is:

    Do you want your email addresses public to one another?
    If not, do you know of another way, other than email, that we can create an interest group? LinkedIn would be one potential way.
    Are you willing to send and receive emails directly from one another?

    What do you need and want relative to your interest in dancing with people with dementia? What are you willing to share?

    Thanks to all. May you have a most joyous July 4th celebration.

    Best wishes,
    Donna
