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, and parents 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.
(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)

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.

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).
