Spiralling Inward: Interoception as a Dance and Somatic Movement Therapy Practice and Process
Date: Sunday, September 27, 2020
Time: 9:30am to 12:30pm AEST
Venue: An online workshop by Zoom Webinar
Open to: All qualified and student Dance/Movement Therapists, and Body-oriented psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists interested in the practice of dance/movement therapy.
Dance movement therapy’s power lies in many aspects of the mind-body connection. As a psychotherapy, its unique emphasis on bridging the implicit and the explicit, the internal and external, makes it uniquely positioned to support clients enduring the effects of stress, uncertainty and trauma, and for our own embodied self-care.
This 3-hour workshop will combine science, spirit and experiential processes to refine and enhance our interoceptive abilities, a radical act of micro-empowerment. Micro-empowerments, a polyvagal-informed DMT principle and practice, are essential to restoring agency and relative safety for survivors of trauma. Likewise, therapists micro-empowerment practice promotes resiliency to counter burn-out and vicarious trauma.
