    Brief description:

    This workshop introduces a comprehensively reorganized and elaborated dance/movement therapy (DMT) code of ethics and standards, launched at the conference this 50th year of the American Dance Therapy Association. Revision has involved intensive work by the ADTA Standards and Ethics Committee members. The revised code newly introduces or substantially develops areas including the use of touch, multicultural competence, advocacy and promotion of social justice, assessment, research, guidance for resolution of ethical dilemmas, and technology.   We hope this webinar and acquaintance with the revised code and standards document will generate ethics discussion, support use of the code and standards as a guide, and stimulate participants to carry forward their work with sensitivity and an appreciation for their ethical responsibilities.


    1. Clarify principles and values that underlie the dance/movement therapy code and guided its revision.
    2. Gain knowledge of previously omitted or emerging content areas addressed in the revised code.
    3. Understand the role of an ethics code in resolution of professional ethical dilemmas.
