Ethics Compliance

DMTCB has converted its application and filing paperwork to an electronic process in order to modernize our operation, make it easier for professionals to use, and to reduce our carbon footprint. 

New applicants and those credentialed who need to provide updates to DMTCB will utilize both online forms (found under the appropriate DMTCB section), as well as upload materials via the new website's CE Tracker (serving as your professional credential repository and online transcript).    

Like any new process, we are here to assist those who may experience any difficulties or have questions.  Please contact the ADTA National Office at [email protected] or (518) 704-3636. Thank you. 

DMTCB Ethics Compliance

The Dance/Movement Therapy Certification Board (DMTCB) develops and promotes high ethical standards for dance/movement therapists. DMTCB requires that registered and board certified dance/movement therapists meet these standards. Disciplinary procedures are used for processing complaints of possible violations of these ethics standards.

These procedures are applicable to DMTCB certificants and applicants for DMTCB certification. When dance/movement therapists apply for certification or recertification, they agree to abide by the DMTCB policies, including the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice and the DMTCB Ethics Case Procedures.

Any person, group or, in appropriate cases, DMTCB, may initiate an ethics case and act as a complainant. A complainant other than DMTCB must contact the DMTCB Chairperson and complete the Ethics Charge Statement Form.
