Overview

Dance Movement Psychotherapy at University of Derby  will encourage you to build on your knowledge, experience and creative expression whilst developing new skills within the field of clinical Dance Movement Psychotherapy. You will be guided by the principles that underlie humanistic and integrative psychotherapy while creatively exploring self-expression through body, movement and dance.

Lectures will incorporate presentations, reflexive discussion and experiential aspects. You will consider the relationship between theory and practice, becoming familiar with the most up to date research and applying learned theories and methods within your clinical placement. You will be supported through weekly tutorials and supervision sessions; these will assist you in developing your ideas and considering critical perspectives when reflecting on your work. Assessments will vary to encourage your creativity and reflective process; these include presentations, video production, facilitation and written critiques.

Career:

You will become a fully registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist with the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP UK). This requires completion of the expected training hours and fulfilling all the hours of personal therapy. 

You can develop practice in health, education and in the community and later supervise, lecture and research in the field of Dance Movement Psychotherapy. 

You will gain an MA, which will enable you to become familiar with critical reflection and research ideas.
