As an arts therapy approach, DMT has the potential to contribute to activation, stabilisation, and recovery in the context of prevention, acute intervention, and rehabilitation. In both research and clinical practice, there is an increasing interest in dance movement therapy as a significant enhancement to standard care.
Dance movement therapists do not work exclusively in traditional settings such as psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, or special education. Dance Movement Therapy is also applied in neurology, oncology, cardiovascular medicine, etc. and increasingly in preventive care.
The Dance Movement Therapy programme at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg qualifies the student for clinical practice, working with children and adults in the following core settings:
- Psychosomatic medicine and psychotherapy
- Pediatrics, children and youth psychiatry and psychotherapy
