    Center for Movement Education & Research


    Group Process in Dance/Movement Therapy


    This course has been approved by the American Dance Therapy Association as meeting requirements for the Alternate Route R-DMT credential and satisfies 45 hours of DMT Group Process requirement.

     

    The process of getting into your own depths is the process that makes you able to accompany someone else into their depths.    Mary Whitehouse, 1978  

     

     

    Course Description:   This course is an experiential dance/movement therapy group with a didactic component, addressing the dynamics inherent in dance/movement therapy processes, particularly those stemming from Mary Whitehouse’s concept of “movement in depth” and Marian Chace’s concept of “dance for communication.” Individual and group experience will be explored through engagement in dance/movement therapy processes, in conjunction with readings, discussion, and lecture-presentation. This course focuses on experiential development of the kinesthetically-based self-awareness, interactive insight and empathy necessary to effective functioning as a dance/movement therapist.  It is designed for entry level dance/movement therapy students with a background in psychological studies, including interning and practicing psychotherapists, students with prior dance/movement therapy training, including CMER students who have completed Dance/Movement Therapy Theory and Practice I, II, and III, and dance/movement therapists who would like to refresh their skills and studies.

    InstructorForest Franken, MA, MFA, BC-DMT

    Forest has been a DMT CMER faculty member since 2008, teaching ADTA approved alternate route coursework in California and in Seoul, South Korea.  As a Dance/Movement Therapist she is also a faculty member of Circles of Four, a post-graduate international program for the training of students in the Discipline of Authentic Movement, founded by Janet Adler in 2014 and an adjunct faculty member at JFK University.

    Forest received both her M.A. in dance/movement therapy (1995) and her M.F.A. in choreography (2003) from UCLA. Her work as a dance/movement therapist spans thirteen years in inpatient psychiatric hospitals, intensive outpatient programs, and rehabilitation facilities with adolescents, adults, and seniors.

    In 1998, she moved to Northern California to study the discipline of Authentic Movement with Janet Adler whom she mentored with for nine years. From 2001-2008, Forest worked at UCSF/Langley Porter Psychiatric Hospital and Clinics where, as inpatient supervisor to chaplain interns, she explored the integration of spirituality, dance/movement therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy, and as facilitator of pain management groups, focused on the applications of dance/movement therapy and Authentic Movement principles with individuals navigating the challenges of living with chronic pain. In 2014, Forest continued her studies with Janet Adler traveling regularly to Canada to deepen her work in Authentic Movement.

    Forest has a passion for teaching Authentic Movement with attention to the discipline as a vehicle for creative work and for containing and expressing life changes/losses related to the body.
