"Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) recognises body movement as an implicit and expressive instrument of communication and expression. DMP is a relational process in which client/s and therapist engage in an empathic creative process using body movement and dance to assist integration of emotional, cognitive, physical, social and spiritual aspects of self."
Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) is a form of creative arts therapy that has been gaining attention for its unique capabilities in its ability to by-pass the complex obstacle of verbalisation; crossing linguistic and cultural boundaries.
It is a holistic approach that balances traditional cognitive therapies and physical treatment and uses our bodies to attach to thoughts and emotions when words are not enough. Unlike other therapies, DMP aims to channel non-verbal communication to help make sense of the meaning of what occurs within non-verbal exchanges as ways to relate to the child's language and inner unconscious feelings.
Movement becomes more than exercise—it becomes a language!
