The Role of Embodiment in Psychological Wellbeing: Lessons from Dance Movement Psychotherapy – Carly Marchant, Edge Hill University

The workshop will introduce how embodied work can enhance the relationship with the self and enable the development of self-concept, while support relationships with others and with the environment. Theoretical principles from the discipline of Dance Movement Psychotherapy will pave the way for exploration of intra- and inter-personal communication and how non-verbal methods of establishing and developing relationships can be used in wider clinical and educational contexts. Applications of Dance Movement Psychotherapy principles to practice will be explored through experiential work and case study examples with reference to diverse client populations.

This two day intensive weekend will be open to artists with an interest in wellbeing, health and psychotherapy, as well as other professionals who will want to know more about dance movement psychotherapy.
