CONFERENCE CELEBRATING

the 15th anniversary of the master’s programme in DMT, UAB

Since we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our master’s programme in 2013, it seems as though the world has changed in many ways: huge waves of refugees; unprecedented numbers of terrorist attacks; surprising election results that clash with old certainties and re-organize our perception of the immediate environment. Indeed, the world is moving with great speed and this movement is also challenging the identity of our profession.

Neuroscientific contributions from recent decades have added greatly to our sense of our work, giving it new weight and further shifting the focus to corporeality and movement. But where are we going as a profession? What is our identity, our professional culture? Prevention? Psychotherapy? Clinical work?….

We witness so many dances, so many varied forms of movement from our students and clients. But what is it that moves us?

We would like to invite our former students, as well as all professionals of DMT in Spain and other parts of the world, to reflect and work with this theme, to join us in celebrating the 15th anniversary of the training that we offer at the UAB.

“Moving and Being Moved Into the World”

PROF. DR. CHRISTINE CALDWELL

All life moves. All people move. Those of us here have made a special and sacredcommitment to movement; to move with others in ways that heal. How does this vow we have taken become embodied when we are dealing with people who have been pushed, been forced, been expelled? At a time when nations are becoming infected with a desire to polarize, to exclude, and to turn from the truth, we here with our feet on the ground and our hands outstretched are dealing with a kind of human suffering that finds its roots in state-sponsored violence and neglect. In the face of these new challenges we can no longer rely on old, intrapsychic models of healing. Our movement is political as well as personal. Our sessions are activisms as well as self reflections. Our dances are protests as well as affirmations.

What will dance movement therapy look like as the twenty first century progresses? How will it move in ways that heal us socially and environmentally as well as personally? While we feel a deep gratitude to our founding mothers for what they developed, we can also acknowledge that they did not prepare us for these new social realities. We must dig deep into the foundations of our work, into movement itself, for the inspiration and the guidance to go forward. We have already been taught the work of movement on personal and group levels. Now it is time to develop new forms of dance therapy that address the social and political levels. This speech will suggest some pathways for how we can move with and within these contexts.

“Moving together: Supporting people with medically unexplained symptoms in primary care”

PROF. DR. HELEN PAYNE

This presentation will address the global issue of common debilitating bodily symptoms , which are hard to explain by medical, known, pathology. A working definition, the prevalence and the enormous costs of these conditions will be considered together with a summary of the patient mind-set, profile and experience. These all need to be considered in approaches towards supporting patient self-management to ensure the intervention is tailor-made for this patient population, many of whom can present with complexities such as insecure attachment. An example of an appropriate approach, derived from dance movement psychotherapy, called The BodyMind Approach™ will be given together with the rationale for delivery in the UK National Health Service. Furthermore, reliable change outcomes as a consequence of implementing this service for supporting people with medically unexplained symptoms/somatic symptom disorder (previously termed psychosomatic conditions) in primary care will be demonstrated.
