Dynamic Equilibrium: Group Process in Dance/Movement Therapy

10/5/18 – 10/7/18 & 10/26/18 – 10/28/18, 45 hours, 3 credits. Friday, Saturdays & Sundays 9:00am-5:30pm.

Instructed by Nanine Ewing, PhD, FAGPA, CGP, BC- DMT, LMFT & Kalila Homann, LPC-S, BC-DMT.

NOTE: Course includes both weekends.

Embodied experience is the lifeblood in a dynamic group as it navigates closeness, connection, aggression and communication. This advanced course for clinicians and movement educators engages movement to explore group structure, cohesion, conflict, and group leadership in each developmental phase of a group process. Deeply rooted in group psychotherapy theory, the body is engaged in movement in each phase of the learning process. Participants will learn skills and experiential approaches as well as processing techniques. This is the potent introduction to a three year course series on Group Process, and students who have taken this course will be able to progress through the next two advanced group courses.
