The many roles of a dance/movement therapist.

My last blog post created a rich social media discussion about many elements of the dance/movement therapy (DMT) culture and who we are a profession.  Many people commented on the Facebook thread, commented on the blog itself, or messaged me directly.  It’s evident people had a lot to say and the culture of DMT is a topic that people care about.  What is also evident is that as professionals we come from vast backgrounds that shape our points of view.  As dance/movement therapist, we have many roles within our professional and personal lives that are influenced by our DMT knowledge.  We aren’t just dance/movement therapists, we are much more than that.  Here are a few of the roles that I identify with personally and professionally.
