Immersing themselves in the field of dance/movement therapy for a week, participants recently took part in an intensive workshop offered by AUNE. The workshops, taught by AUNE faculty, are intended for those who want to explore dance/movement therapy as a career, as well as for those who want to further their professional development.
“The intensive provides an opportunity for prospective students and interested professionals to â€˜dip their toe’ into the profession and feel solid about their desire for deeper immersion in the field,” said Christina Devereaux, director of clinical training in the Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) and Counseling program at AUNE.
“The participants gain both a deeper understanding of the profession, through experiential learning, but also are able to experience how DMT can be a profound outlet for personal expression and change,” Devereaux said. “As one participant indicated, her experience at the intensive was â€˜A wonderful, life-changing experience. It was inspiring, moving and generally a wonderful experience…â€˜”
Two more intensives are scheduled for:
â€¢ January 6-8, 2012 , a three-day intensive
â€¢ June 4-8, 2012 , a five-day intensive
