Authentic Movement Course - Developing Awareness of One’s Own Experience

Date: April 20-23, 2017

Place:Shanghai

Description

This course will focus on the recognition, acknowledgement, and exploration of one’s own impulses to move. Through the use of Authentic Movement and other improvisation exercises, students will be encouraged to explore their impulses, needs, and demands; and how to recognize them as they arise. Through participation in class movement exercises, class members will begin to examine both interpersonal and intrapersonal aspects of moving. Through this approach students will be introduced to the work of understanding and integrating movement, sensation, and emotion. The course will emphasize the need for awareness of one’s own experience as mover in preparation for learning to see and contain the experience of other movers (patients/clients). This course will meet for 4 days, 7.5 hours per day (30 hours total), and will equal 2 credit hours. 

Goal

The primary goal of this course is to begin to recognize one’s own movement impulses and preferences, and to consider how to use awareness of these impulses and preferences to gather information about clients, and to use this information in dance/movement therapy sessions. 

Objectives

1. To gain a beginning ability to recognize one’s own movement impulses and preferences as they might emerge in dance/movement therapy sessions.

2. To gain a beginning understanding of the relationship between movement, sensation, and emotion.

3. To gain a beginning awareness of one’s own movement experience as preparation for witnessing the movement experiences of clients/patients.
