DMT Postgraduate diploma

16ª Edition. Curso 2021/22

Due to the growing demand to learn more about DMT (Dance Movement Therapy), this postgraduate diploma was created in 2006: The fundamental objective of the programme is to offer a wide introduction about DMT for professionals from the fields of psychology, education, social work, occupational therapy, dance and movement teachers, and others.

The course does not offer a training in DMT as such, but a broad introduction about its application and some of its techniques and tools. Without doing any clinical practice and supervision, the professionals who undertake this course can learn some of DMT tools and integrate them for their professional and private demands.

The postgraduate diploma is adapted to the new system of European Credits (ECTS) with a total of 30 ECTS (30 credits according to the European system of Credit transfer).

The possibility of continuing with the training in DMT exists for those who have finished the postgraduate diploma and passed a tutorial with the course coordination.

  • To give a wide introduction to DMT for professionals of psychology, pedagogy, medicine, social work, occupational therapists, dance and movement teachers, etc.
