Course Details


Our Summer School provides participants with the opportunity to experience an intensive five session experiential class, and involves direct experiential learning about the Dance Movement Psychotherapy MA Programme at the University of Roehampton.

Combining dance and movement expression within a psychotherapeutic frame, participants will be invited to experiment through a range of non-verbal and verbal expressions—movement, gesture, words, play, rhythm, storytelling and ritual. The main focus is to explore ways of linking body awareness with emotional awareness.

Intended Audience

This day will be useful for anyone wishing to find out more about dance movement psychotherapy. It details how dance movement psychotherapists work in a variety of different settings.

It will be beneficial to those wishing to satisfy curiosity, and also enable those who may wish to consider training as a dance movement psychotherapist to reflect on their motivations and skills.

Participants will be expected to engage in experiential and improvisational movement tasks and small group discussions. Comfortable clothing should be worn for dance movement practice.


This day will provide an introduction to dance movement psychotherapy, specifically the integrative approach taught on the MA Programme at the University of Roehampton.

It is useful for anyone wishing to undertake training a subsequent career in dance movement psychotherapy and for those who would like to find out more about what is actually involved in practice. An electonic certificate of attendance will be emailed on completion of the course.
