It has become traditional to organise DMT workshops
the day before the General Assembly.

Specialists  from  different  countries  will  share  their  knowledge  and  expertise  with their  EADMT colleagues,  local professionals and  students. EADMT  is convinced  that  this  helps  to  rise awareness  about  the effectiveness  of  Dance Movement Therapy.

Relational Movement Analysis and the Effort Factor “Space”

In this workshop we will explore in movement and verbally our attitude towards the effort factor “space” (Laban Movement Analysis) within the context of a large group, and its effect on our inner attitude towards the other three effort factors. (Flow, Weight, Time) The emphasis will be placed on how we relate in movement to other group members and to the group as a whole.

Amerta Movement: a proposal to work self esteem in DMT’

It’ s the power of the poetical Amerta Movement vocabulary that moves me to include this proposal in the therapeutical setting. this language, becomes a genuine approach to feel, to understand and to give value to the issue of self esteem for the transformation itself. Amerta gives to us inspiration as well as tools to connect with the healthiest and most beautiful side of everyone. ‘Embody the place and Inhabit the body, as a practise in the quotidiane to the change in the essential’.
