Movement Therapy for Teens

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) is the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further one’s cognitive, social, physical, and spiritual growth. The dance/movement therapist aims to facilitate healthy experiences that foster this growth through the body-mind connection in order to explore one’s connection to self, as a way to increase self-awareness and self-esteem; as well as to explore connection to others, increasing and building healthy social skills. Body movement is used as a way to assess an individual as well as a means to intervene.

Dance/Movement Therapy is based upon the assumption that the body and mind are connected. It is by exploring this connection through the relationship with the dance/movement therapist that one can expand their abilities and knowledge of the ways in which they can adapt, communicate, and express themselves. By utilizing information from the body, one can live a more fully expressive, healthy life.
