ALTERNATE ROUTE DANCE/MOVEMENT THERAPY TRAINING
92nd Street Y – Harkness Dance Center
NEW YORK CITY
Dance/Movement Therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical, and social integration of the individual. The dance/movement therapist focuses on movement behavior as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviors are all considered for both group and individual treatment. (www.adta.org ).
An intensive Alternate Route Training Program in Dance/Movement Therapy will be held at the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center, NYC, beginning June 9 – June 27, 2014. This program will take place over three summers, for 3 weeks each summer.
Applicants to the program need to have at least begun a Masters Degree in a related field, or in one of the helping professions.
Dr. Miriam Roskin Berger is the Director of this program, which offers the Dance/Movement Therapy course requirements of 270 hours for alternate route training, plus 90 hours of Movement Observation and Analysis and 45 hours of Group Process in DMT, as required by the American Dance Therapy Association. Visit www.adta.org for more information on course requirements for Registry and Certification as a dance/movement therapist.

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 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.
(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, 30 CE’s per course are available)

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