    Mindfulness in Dance/Movement Therapy: A Tool for Awareness and Change  

    with Annabelle F. Coote, MA, LMHC, BC-DMT

    Tuesday, December 9, 2014, Noon to 1 PM EST
    Registration closes December 8, 2014.


    Description

    Emphasizing the connections between mind and body, dance/movement therapy inherently makes use of mindfulness practices.  In this webinar, we will delve into ways to consciously and actively use mindfulness as a therapeutic tool.  We will look at how present-moment awareness helps to regulate the nervous system so that clients can work in an optimal zone of affective arousal.  Participants will be introduced to differences in applying generalized mindfulness, such as overall awareness of thoughts, emotions and body experience, and more directed mindfulness, such as bringing focused attention to one aspect of experience to the exclusion of others.  We will explore the importance of bringing mindfulness into movement so that embodied experience and expression can effectively serve growth and change.

    Learning Objectives

    • Increase awareness of ways to incorporate mindfulness into therapeutic practice.
    • Understand ways in which mindfulness can be used to regulate nervous system arousal.
    • Identify unique considerations when using mindfulness in dance/movement therapy.
