This ‘playshop’ provides participants with a practical, theoretical, and experiential rationale for using the body, dance, and movement-based therapy to work with survivors of trauma, as well as for our own resilience and well-being. This work is based on Amber’s 23 years experience with survivors of human rights abuses, using somatic, movement, rhythm and dance practices with clients who have experienced trauma, as well as a measure of protection, self-care, and increased compassion for therapists.

This course is suitable for mental health professionals, somatic or movement practitioners, or any helping professional interested in using expressive arts methods for working with trauma. No experience in Dance/Movement Therapy or Somatic Psychotherapy is required. A contemporary, evidence-based phasic approach to working with complex trauma provides the foundation for the theoretical material.

This course is approved for 1 credit of ADTA Alternate Route training. Alternate route credits will require an additional two hours of zoom sessions with Amber following the weekend workshop, as well as completing assignments. Contact Marie-Claire if interested in ADTA Alt Route credits.
