We will explore the creative and expressive use of the arts for healing and self-actualization. You do not have to have experience in the arts to enjoy and learn. Focus will be on both personal expression and learning creative therapeutic methods. This work is designed for individuals who want to become more comfortable with their own creative potential and that of others. We will explore the unique expressive properties of different modalities including art, dance, drama, music and writing. Each modality builds on the other and the shared creative experience paves the way for self-knowledge, empathy and insight. Clinical discussion will shed light on when and how to use the arts in treatment, and cases will be presented.

Dance/Movement Therapy: Theory and Practice
Level 3: Group and Individual Dance Therapy For the Higher Functioning Client
Instructor: Bonnie Bernstein M.Ed., MFT, BC-DMT (MFC #24813)
Course Description: This experiential and didactic course provides an in-depth investigation of dance/movement therapy with the higher functioning client seen in non-psychiatric settings. The techniques and methods are developed for the clinical population who seek therapy to deal with life challenges and who have the ego strength to work in insight-oriented dance/movement therapy. The training will focus on dance/movement therapy techniques and methods for creative transformation, addressing themes including but not limited to: developmental and character issues, family and relationship dynamics, blocks to meeting personal potential, life style issues, body image issues, grief and life transitions and recovery from trauma.
The course will explore the theories, methods and contemporary applications of the Blanche Evan method of Dance/Movement/Word Therapy. The insight-oriented approaches of other pioneers: Espinak, Whitehouse and Chodorow will also be introduced. Participants will learn methods for working within community mental health clinics, private practice studios, trauma treatment programs, personal development workshops, and programs in the global community.
DMT level 3 is designed as the third theories and practice course for students who are preparing for alternate route certification. It is also open to practicing professionals who are interested in the Blanche Evan Method to add new dimensions to their clinical skills.

SEEKING BC-DMT to TEACH A DANCE/MOVEMENT THERAPY COURSE at MONMOUTH UNIVERSITY, Long Branch, NJ
See letter below, from the Chair of Dept of Psychological Counseling at Monmouth University:
We are interested in developing an elective in dance/movement therapy to be offered to students in our two Master's Degree programs. It would be a graduate-level course that must (by university regulation) be taught by someone holding at least a Master's Degree in a related field, preferably with experience in teaching a college course in this area (not just certificate or CE training). If you are interested or know someone with those credentials who may be, please let me know.
This is an elective course planned for Spring 2015, so we have some time to get it ready. It would meet once per week for the duration of the Spring semester, and our classes usually meet in the evenings. The reimbursement depends on the graduate degree of the adjunct professor - Master's degree pay is 2600 per course, and those with doctorates receive 3000 per course.
Since this is planned for Spring 2015, the need is not immediate. However, it would be good to identify someone with significant notice to have time to discuss the development of the course, review its content, etc.
Very best regards,
