Introduction to the Kestenberg Movement Profile (2 credits/30 hours/30 CE hours)
with Suzanne Hastie

April 20-June 29, 2021 (meeting every Tuesday Online via Zoom 6-8pm EST)

In this 30 hour introductory course, participants will learn the basic layout of the KMP, the movement patterns contained within it, and the developmental and psychological significance of the patterns. Through experiential activities, discussion, asynchronous assignments, and observational practice, students will come to understand the depth, wholeness, and vision the KMP has to offer therapists and educators in their work. Clinical applications will be integrated into the course.

Constructing Kestenberg Movement Profiles II:  Tension Flow Attributes, Pre-efforts, Efforts, Shaping in Directions, and Shaping in Planes (2 credits/30 hours/30 CE hours)
with Suzanne Hastie

April 28-June 30, 2021 (meeting every Wednesday Online via Zoom 8-10am EST)
In this 30 hour course, students and clinicians will focus on tension flow attributes (affect), pre-efforts (defenses and learning style), efforts (coping style and ego strength), shaping in directions (structure for defenses, boundaries, and learning), and shaping in planes (structure for complex relationships). Movement observation, labeling, notation, and diagram construction will be taught and practiced. Clinical understanding of these patterns will be deepened and further applications to clinical work will be explored. Construction of the TFA, PE, E, SD, and SP diagrams of the profile as well as an analysis of the findings will be required (for alternate route students and those pursuing KMP certification).

*(these 30 hour courses are approved by the American Dance Therapy Association as meeting requirements for the Alternate Route R-DMT credential)
