3rd Annual International Conference: ‘Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) – Approaches and Techniques in an Indian Paradigm’

Creative Movement Therapy Association of India (CMTAI) in collaboration with Artsphere  & Symbiosis University (Pune)

Presents

Its 3rd Annual International Conference

‘Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) – Approaches and Techniques in an Indian Paradigm’

Pune, India, 26th & 27th November 2016

Since its inception in the U.S.A., Dance Movement Therapy has been spreading its wings across several countries through therapists and trainers innovating varied approaches and methods to work with their clients and participants.  In India, a plethora of indigenous dance forms have enriched and expanded the scope of conventional DMT being practiced in varied socio-cultural settings. 

The conference will provide a forum for presenters and participants to share and experience various applications of DMT through presentations of research papers, informal discussions, lecture-demonstrations, experiential workshops, talks and film viewings.

There will be 35 nationally and internationally acclaimed presenters offering their talks and experiential sessions on different aspects of dance movement therapy to nearly 175 participants from different parts of India and the world.

Renowned expert-trainers, through their presentations, will:

a) Investigate changing theoretical frameworks and practice of DMT in relation to Indian society & culture as well as in other countries,

b) Reflect on the therapeutic potentials in Indian movement practices (folk, classical, tribal, social, ritual & martial dances) and dance movement therapy in general in relation to different populations (normal functioning and those with special needs and challenges)

c) Explore how elements of physical traditions from India and other cultures have been creatively synthesized into healing experiences in DMT practice, and

d) Discuss strategies to further utilize, integrate and popularize DMT across the urban-rural contexts of India and other countries.


The conference is open to teachers, special educators, medical professionals, expressive arts therapists, psychotherapists, physiotherapists, visual / performing artists, social workers, corporate trainers, students, consultants, healers, HR professionals, etc.
