Required of and restricted to DMT I students.

This course provides students with a forum for the integration of practicum experiences, theoretical material and personal learning related to professional development. It will offer a supportive environment to discuss the interface of ethical, personal and professional issues. Developing an identity as a mental health counselor and a dance/movement therapist, and understanding the issues relevant to these roles in relation to the larger professional organizations and associations will be included. Attention will also be drawn to group process and dynamics as evidenced in the ongoing development of the peer group. The application of core DMT skills and competencies will be an ongoing aspect of the course. In addition, attention will be given to locating and securing a counseling practicum/internship for the following year.
